Notes

Two to three species, probably native in the Mediterranean region, but widely spread as agricultural weeds and/or ornamentals. Several phylogenetic studies (Oxelman & Lidén 1995; Oxelman & al. 1997; Fior & al. 2006; Greenberg & Donoghue 2011) strongly support Agrostemma as a sistergroup to the rest of the tribe Sileneae.
