Genus: Silene — campion

In this key, the genus Silene includes relatively few species, following the phylogenetic research of Oxelman et al. (2000) and others, rather than defining it more broadly as some have done (e.g., Morton 2005). Other genera into which the additional New England species are placed include Atocion, Eudianthe, Lychnis, Silene, and Viscaria.
