Description

Ragged Robin Plug Plants Silene flos-cuculi (Syn. Lychnis flos-cuculi)

A delicately beautiful native British perennial, boasting charming pink flowers adorned with ragged petals.

Ragged Robin thrives in damp conditions such as wetland meadows alongside companions like meadow buttercup. Once a common sight along roadsides and in wet meadows and pastures across Britain, ragged Robin has sadly dwindled in numbers due to modern farming practices and wetland drainage.

This tough and reliable perennial is an ideal addition to any damp border, bog garden, pond edge, or wildflower meadow. Its adaptability makes it an excellent choice for various garden settings, ensuring it can flourish wherever it's planted.

Our strong, healthy plants are grown in 40cc cell trays and are ready to be planted in their final position.

Sourced from native seed and grown for us in the UK, our plug plants are an ideal way to boost species in a wildflower meadow or to easily establish plants in your garden or in areas where seed germination can be erratic.

We recommend planting 5 plugs per metre square in groups of at least 3 per species for a naturalistic look.
