Lychnis flos-cuculi - Ragged Robin

Ragged Robin (Nóinín mór)

This native wildflower is abundant throughout Ireland, usually seen in marshes and damp meadows where it is one of the prettiest to inhabit these type of areas. Linear to oblong leaves on slender, upright stalks bear deep rose-pink flowers, the petals modified into delicately fringed blossoms to make it withstand the wind. This charming plant will transform any damp area with colour from May to August. Much loved by butterflies – among them our Common Blue - and long-tongued bees who feed on the nectar produced by the plant.
