Ragged Robin (Lychnis flos-cuculi)


Swaying in a gentle breeze, the delicate pink flowers of Ragged-Robin can be a joy to behold in any wildflower meadow, damp pasture or woodland ride. But it's not just passing humans that benefit from its star-shaped flowers, bumblebees, butterflies and Honey Bees all enjoy the nectar it produces. A growing favourite among gardeners, try planting Ragged-Robin in a boggy area or flower border and see who comes to visit...

Ragged-Robin is a perennial that is likely to be growing in wetter areas such as marshes, fens and wet meadows. It has much-divided, pink flowers (hence the name 'Ragged') and narrow, grass-like leaves.
