The Sea Campion grows by the seashore, by the side of mountain streams, or on wet rocks among the hills.
It blooms all summer, and although it is really a smaller plant than the Common White Campion, the flowers are larger.
These flowers have five white petals, each with a V-shaped notch in the outer edge. Half way down these petals there is a white-fringed scale. These scales stand up like a crown round the inside of the flower.
The calyx is swollen like a bladder, and is covered with fine veins, the same as in the Common Campion. Round the mouth it has five sharp teeth.
In this plant the flowers do not grow in groups of two or three. Each flower appears singly at the end of a slender stalk, and there are several pairs of small leaves a good way below the flower.
These leaves are slightly thick and juicy. They grow so close together on the ground that it looks as if it were covered with a green mat.
