Bladder Campion (Silene vulgaris). The Bladder Campion has loose clusters of white flowers with a balloon-like calyx, generally prominently veined, and deeply notched petals. It flowers from April through August and is found in fields and on roadsides. The point where the stalk meets the calyx has a naval-like depression, distinctive from similar species (Niering & Olmstead 474).
