I live in Western Germany and since this summer a really beatiful flower planted itself on my balcon. I tried finding out what it is but I couldn't come up with a match.

Maybe anybody else has a suggestion? I hope the not-so-well-taken picture will do 😅

Thx in advance!

That is Lychnis coronaria, also called Silene coronaria, also called Rose Campion in English. I like it as a garden plant, but it must be kept dead-headed so that it doesn't seed itself everywhere.
