Bonnie, Catchfly as I know it is Silene or Lychnis.  Is this a 
reclassification?  BTW, I have grown both Silene & Lychnis from seed and both are great 
reseeders.  I find it interesting that this is listed in the index as catchfly not 
Viscaria.  Platycodon is another plant that has become almost invasive in my 
garden as it reseeds and the root system goes deep.  One of my favorites is 
the very short, large blooming, 'Sentimental Blue' which I have started from 
seed.  I have 'Komachi' in my garden (just below Astra) and it is my favorite  
tall Platycodon but was purchased as a plant.
