Description

Spot the Burnet Moth here – the jewel-like black and scarlet moth. I love this wildflower for its brilliant colour and shape, forming billowing tufts in rough grasses and meadow edges and packed full of pollen and nectar for our pollinators.

Care Tips

This versatile wildflower will establish happily on the edges of woodland, banks, scrubland and grassland. It has a preference for reasonably fertile, damp soils but is intolerant of permanently damp sites.
