Ragged robin


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.
