A wonderful British native wildflower for wet meadows, bog gardens, or suitably moist areas of the garden. Upright with branching stems bearing lance-shaped leaves, ragged robin dazzles with terminal clusters of star-shaped, deep rose-pink flowers, narrowly dissected to which insects flock in late spring and early summer.
