Pheasant’s eye -adonis annua– is an annual meadow plant that grew in cornfields in the past. Sadly, it has been affected by modern herbicides and is now scarce in the wild. Fortunately it can still be introduced into gardens and conservation headlands and looks best when grown with other cornfield plants. Pheasant’s eye should always be sown in light dry soils and needs plenty of sun. Plants produce scarlet flowers with black centres that appear in June and July. Pheasant’s eye looks best growing with other cornfield annuals such as Corn Chamomile, Corn Cockle, Corn Marigold, Wild Pansies, Coren Buttertcups, Cornflowers and Poppies.

How to grow Pheasant’s eye Seeds
Pheasant’s eye seeds are best sown in the autumn, directly outside, where they are to flower. Always sow onto carefully prepared bare soil and cover lightly with soil. .
