red or pink campion is a typical plant of damp woods, but it also
occurs on hedge banks and on open cliffs where the soil is rich.
Most of the foliage is on short non-flowering stems at the base
of the plant. The tall flowering stems carry only a few pairs
of leaves. Stems and leaves are soft and hairy. The bright pink
flowers are at their best in early summer. They are of the kind
called unisexual, the anthers and the stigmas being in separate
flowers, the male and female flowers occurring on different plants.
