Ragged robin is easy to grow and clumps should be split in the Autumn to increase the amazing bank of colour for the following year.
Perfect for pollinators such as butterflies and long tongued bees.
£3.00 – £5.70
Ragged robin is found in damp meadows, or river banks and is ideal planted at a pond edge or in a damp spot in the garden. It grows easily in ordinary garden soil, and prefers a sunny position. The flower heads are as suggested a ragged riot of deep pink, which are very attractive blowing in the breeze. A mass of Ragged robin adds a beautiful swathe of colour to the garden and looks amazing when planted with bright yellows or dark purple wildflowers, such as Marsh marigolds and Loosestrife.
