Silene vulgaris - Bladder Campion

Bladder Campion (Coireán na gcuach)

Named after Silenus, the god of the woodlands in Greek mythology, this is a beautiful native wildflower that can be found all around Ireland. White, drooping flowers are borne on upright grey-green downy stems from June to August. The base of the flower is inflated, a little like a balloon or bladder (hence the common name), pink and veined. A lovely scent of cloves is detectable at night-time and noted for attracting wildlife.
