Description

If I had to name my top five favourite wild flowers, Ragged Robin would be up there and with this pure white form, what could be nicer? This was all over the Chelsea flower show 2017 and 2018 in the many wild flower meadows, spread throughout the show. It makes a pretty and elegant cut flower too.

Care Tips

Requires poor to fertile soil in full sun. If you do not want plants to self seed, deadhead as the flowers fade. This should also prolong blooming.
