Lesser Knapweed

Common, Black or Lesser Knapweed, Thistle-like purple flowers, looks good with ox-eye daisies.

Common/Lesser Knapweed

 

Oxeye Daisy

Also known as the Dog Daisy. Often seen in meadows and on roadsides. A well known wild flower with lovely, large, white daisy flowers. Also known as the Dog Daisy. Often seen in meadows and on roadsides. Leucanthemum vulgare is widely cultivated and available as a perennial flowering ornamental plant for gardens and designed meadow landscapes. It thrives in a wide range of conditions and can grow in sun to partial shade, and prefers damp soils. A beautiful Rose Chafer Beetle seen in the gallery.

Meadow Buttercup

The tallest and most graceful of all the butter-cups. Glossy yellow flowers, superb growing in association with Ragged Robin. Common names include meadow buttercup, tall buttercup, common buttercup and giant buttercup. The Victorians believed that the buttercup represented ingratitude and childishness. Perhaps this stems from the playground game of holding a buttercup flower beneath the chin to see if it casts a reflection – if it does, the owner of the chin is said to like butter.

Greater Knapweed

A lovely plant with large, raggy, purple flowers, looks good with scabious, ox-eye daisy and musk mallow.Flowering for weeks on end in high summer and on into autumn.  Not only attractive to butterflies, bees and insects but finches will make the most of the seed heads when the flowers have finally finished.

Wild Carrot 

Biennial with white umbelliferous flowers with a pink tinge. Good for drying. Looks good growing with scabious. Daucus carota, whose common names include wild carrot, bird’s nest, bishop’s lace, and Queen Anne’s lace. They may be pink in bud and may have a reddish or purple flower in the centre of the umbel.  The function of the tiny red flower, coloured by anthocyanin, is to attract insects. Like the cultivated carrot, the D. carota root is edible while young, but it quickly becomes too woody to consume. The flowers are sometimes battered and fried. An orange dye can be made out of the root.
