Summer pheasant's-eye (annual hibernating) summer pheasant's-eye

The summer pheasant's-eye is an endemic field herb. These days it is hard to find due to the usage of herbicides. However, it is a lovely plant with it bright red blossoms and fine-ribbed leaves. It deserves its German name “Adonisröschen” well (Adonis was a pretty youngling in the Greek mythology).

Broad-cast seeding on the spot in September-October or March-April. Grows in every open garden soil at sunny locations. Do not add compost. Sow together with poppy, corn flower, corn bellflower, corncockle. Poisonous.
