[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Lychnis viscaria, the sticky catchfly, is a flowering plant in the family Caryophyllaceae.

It is an upright perennial, growing to 60 cm in height. It gets its English name from the stickiness of its stem. It grows on cliffs and in rocky places. It has a purple flower.

Lychnis viscaria is said to increase the disease resistance of surrounding plants. Extract from L. viscaria contains a relatively high amount of brassinosteroids, which have a proven positive effect on the growth of other plants. In Germany the extract is allowed for use as a "plant strengthening substance."

Beautiful presentation of this flower in bright colours, a bit oversaturated, and good sharpness. Well chosen composition.
