Perfect for pollinators

Ragged Robin- lychnis flos-cuculi takes it’s name from the ragged look of it’s pale pink petals. It’s peak flowering time is in June but individual plants can often be found flowering late into high summer. Ragged Robin is a wetland plant most often associated with damp ground and pond edges. It also grows alongside other small watercourses and in late spring a mass of plants flowering together can look quite spectacular. Ragged Robin can be included in a water garden and will readily set seed once established. Ragged Robin looks best growing alongside Cuckoo flower, and Marsh marigolds.


How to grow Ragged Robin from seeds:
Ragged Robin seeds should be sown in trays of compost in spring or autumn. The trays should be kept moist. Once germinated, the seedlings can be pricked out and grown on, for planting out later in the year. Once established Ragged Robin plants will self-seed quite readily given the right conditions. When handling plants bare in mind that Ragged Robin has a very shallow and fragile root system.
