Silene armeria, commonly known as the Sweet William catchfly, is a species of plant in the family Caryophyllaceae. An annual occurring as a garden escape or throw-out on rubbish tips and waste places. It is usually casual, but may persist for a few years in disturbed, open sites, reproducing by seed.

The name comes from the way in which small insects are trapped by the sticky sap exuded onto the stem. However it is not currently regarded as a carnivorous plant, though it has been identified as a carnivorous plant in the past.

This particular example was photographed in a miniature wildflower meadow at Trafalgar Court, in Fareham. A quiet sheltered residential corner of town, Trafalgar Court has been an annual entrant of local and national "In Bloom" competitions, and recently earned a Gold Award and Best Sheltered Housing Trophy in "Britain in Bloom".
