Set B6 - Wild Flowers Series 2 - card information

41. Ragged Robin
(Lychnis flos-cuculi L.)

41. Ragged Robin

A lover of damp places. Marshy fields, swamps, boggy waste-land and the like are its habitats, and in summer its fragile pink flowers enliven many an otherwise dreary corner. Each of its five petals are divided into four strap-like forms which are the reason for the name "Ragged". The flowering stem rises to a height of two feet and it is in bloom from May to August. It is a near relative of the Red Campion.
