This beautiful plant is in abundance in The Burren during the summer. With its most attractive foliage and its bright red-purple flowers it carpets rocky places, banks and even grows in the little hollows in the limestone pavements. From June to August, these 2-3cm five-petalled flowers appear, each on its own hairy stem. When the blooms first appear on this plant, they are a beautiful magenta colour and as they begin to fade, the flowers turn more violet hue
