About Ragged Robin
Ragged Robin typically naturalises easily in soils that are moist or capable of retaining moisture. It thrives best when cultivated in grassy areas and frequently forms clusters near marshy regions or along the edges of ponds or waters. It is commonly found growing in tandem with plants like Marsh Marigold and Meadowsweet.
In The Records
It was once believed that the plant had magical properties and could ward off evil spirits or bring good luck. In the 19th century, the poet John Clare wrote “The Ragg’d Robin,” where he celebrated the plant’s beauty and resilience in the face of adversity.
