This little pinky-red meadow flower is often found in the wild growing in woodlands and in the verges of country roads. It's easy to grow and makes a good addition to a rockery or semi-shaded patch in need of some colour. The clump-forming plant is hardy and will tolerate most soils, although it can struggle to cope with very acid ground. It has rich green leaves that appear in spring, and has a long flowering period right through until the start of autumn. It is a low-maintenance plant that only needs dividing later in the year if it has become too large. It's also fairly pest-free, and doesn't seem to attract much attention from slugs and snails.
