Perfect for pollinators

Goat’s beard -tragopogon pratenis– grows best in well-drained, dry soils, on sites in sunlight or semi-shade. In gardens, Goat’s beard can be introduced into meadows or rough grassland, where plants will attract a range of insect life including bees. Goat’s beard is a low growing species with yellow flowers resembling dandelions that appear in June and July. The attractive fluffy seed-heads that follow are a distinctive feature of limestone grasslands in mid-summer. Goat’s beard looks best growing with other chalk and limestone plants that flower in early to mid summer such as Oxeye daisies, Greater Knapweed, Meadow Cranesbills and Small Scabious. Alternative Names for Goat’s beard include Jack-go-to-bed-at-noon and Salsify.

How to grow Goat’s beard Seeds
Goat’s beard seeds should be sown in spring or autumn, outside, where they are to flower and covered with soil. Once established, Goat’s-beard will normally self-seed readily.

RHS Perfect for Pollinators.
The RHS Perfect for Pollinators mark is only given to plants that support pollinating insects in gardens. Bees, butterflies, moths, hoverflies and many others visit flowers to feed on nectar and pollen; while doing so they transfer pollen and increase seed set and fruit development.
