RHS perfect for pollinators
Perfect for pollinators

Rough Hawkbit -leontoden hispidus – grows best within dry grasslands and is well suited to chalk and limestone soils on sites where there is plenty of sunlight. In gardens it can be introduced into patches of dry grass and will attract a variety of insects including bees. Rough Hawkbit is a low growing species similar to the dandelion and has yellow flowers that appear from June to September. It looks best growing with other chalk and limestone plants that flower in early to mid summer such as Oxeye daisies, Greater Knapweed, Kidney Vetch, Hoary Plantain and Small Scabious.

How to grow Rough Hawkbit Seeds
Rough Hawkbit seeds should be sown in spring or autumn, either outside, where they are to flower, or in seed trays and covered lightly with compost. Rough Hawkbit seeds are usually easy to germinate and the seedlings, which are quick to develop, can be pricked out and grown on, for planting out later in the year.

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.
