Ragged Robins are blooming beautifully and thrive in nature in wet grasslands, in verges and along water-sides in moist to wet, moderately nutritious soil. The umbels of flowers with their pinkish red (to sometimes white), deeply incised flower-petals may appear again (second flowering) in early autumn at the tops of the branched, hairy stems. The spoon-shaped rosetted basal leaves often show a purplish hue. The unstalked stem-leaves are green and pointed. This perennial belongs to the carnation-family of plants. Good winter-hardy.
