Common toadflax (Linaria vulgaris)

- Cowslip (Primula veris)
Flowers: April to May
Geeklet: The origin of the name cowslip is unclear, but it may derive from the fact that it grows in meadows well manured by cow dung or cow slips.
- Meadow cranesbill (Geranium pratense)
Flowers: June to September.
Geeklet: The large purple flowers of Meadow cranesbill turn into pointed, bill-like seed pods that give the plant its common name.
- Musk mallow (Malva moschata)
A tall perennial with large rose pink petals.
Flowers: June to August
Geeklet: The plant is cultivated for its seeds, which are used in perfumes. The plant also yields a fibre that can be used for clarifying sugar.
- Oxeye daisy (Leucanthemum vulgare)
Flowers: May to September
Geeklet: In Austria and Germany oxeye daisies were hung inside the house as it was believed they would repel lightning.
- Red campion (Silene dioica)
A perennial with rose pink petals.
Flowers: March to November
Geeklet: Silenus, the merry god of the woodlands in Greek mythology, gave his name to Silene dioica. The second part of its scientific name, 'dioica', means 'two houses' and refers to the fact that each Red campion plant has flowers of one sex only, so that two plants are needed to make seeds.
