Quick facts for kidsSilene multinervia
Silene multinervia is a species of flowering plant in the family Caryophyllaceae known by the common name manynerve catchfly.
Silene multinervia is an annual herb producing a hairy, glandular, erect stem to a maximum height near 65 centimetres (26 in). The leaves are lance-shaped and up to 10 centimetres (3.9 in) long; the largest ones are low on the stem and smaller ones farther up. Flowers occur in a terminal cyme at the top of the stem, as well as in some of the leaf axils. Each is encapsulated in a hairy calyx of fused sepals which is lined with many veins, more than the 10 that many other Silene have. The five petals are white to pink and have small notches in their tips.
