Ragged Robin (Lychnis flos-cuculi)
Ragged robin can be found growing on damp ground such as marshes, fens, damp pastures and old woods. The flowers are mainly pollinated by butterflies and long-tongued bees. This plant is still widespread across Britain but is not common, due to the decline of wet meadows and pastures and fens having been drained and improved for agriculture. In Shakespeare's time it was known as Crowflower. Ragged robin is deciated to St Barnabas, because hay-making took place around his feast day on 11 June, and the flowers would have been found amongst the hay.
