Ragged-robin is a lovely but declining plant in the wild due to drainage of its natural wetland habitats. The second part of the botanical name translates as 'the flower of the cuckoo'. Ragged-robin comes into flower when cuckoos are calling most obviously, as does the unrelated lady's-smock - another plant known as the cuckoo flower.
