£3.06

Lychnis flos-cuculi, commonly called Ragged Robin, is a herbaceous perennial plant in the family Caryophyllaceae. It is species is native to Europe, where it is found along roads and in wet meadows, rush beds, damp woodland margins and pastures. It like full sun and grow 50-60 cm tall. In Britain it has declined in numbers because of modern farming techniques and draining of wet-lands and is no longer common. Lychnis flos-cuculi forms a rosette of low growing foliage with numerous flower stems 20 to 90 cm tall. The stems rise above the foliage and branch near the top of the stem and end with the pink flowers which are 3-4 cm across. The flowers have five narrow petals deeply divided into four lobes giving the flower an untidy, ragged appearance, hence its common name. The calyx tube is five-toothed with ten stamens. The leaves are paired and untoothed. Ragged Robins bloom from May to August, occasionally later, and butterflies and long-tongued (garden)bees feed on the flowers nectar.
