Ragged-robin (Lychnis flos-cuculi) HP/BB/BN
A sheet of ragged-robin in flower makes a colourful sight in the garden in early summer. The flowers are deeply divided and rose red in colour. Happy in a wetland environment, it is now declining in the wild as these areas are being drained for cultivation. Excellent for beside a pond or in a marshy area. Ht 12-20in. Food plant for the Campion and Lychnis moths and the Swallowtail butterfly.
