Lychnis flos-cuculi Ragged Robin
20 seeds per packet. Fresh wild seed collected from one of the farm's woodland glades. A tall, UK native perennial of damp meadows and wood clearings. Narrow leaves and tall stems bearing delicate, star-shaped, pink flowers (which are an important source of nectar for bees and butterflies) from May to August. Sadly, in Britain the plants numbers have declined due to wetlands being improved for agriculture. Height to 90 cm. Sun in a moist soil. Cold germinator.
