Lychnis flos-cuculi
(Map updated: March 2008)
 

This species is typical of old damp pastures and meadows, but destruction of traditional meadows has rendered it less common today than fifty years ago. Nonetheless it remains a fairly frequent species across the Province.

All names: Lychnis flos-cuculi L.; Silene flos-cuculi (L.) Greuter & Burdet
