Prehen Woods is a small wooded parkland area close to Derry City, N. Ireland. It has taken constant campaigning by local residents to protect the woods from threats of clearance for housing.

Once again the bulldozers and chain saws have entered Prehen Woods this week (February 2012) to destroy another corner of the woods to make way for more houses. A local campaign: No to housing development in Prehen Woods has a Facebook page and an online petition

This Pink Campion (some sources refer to this as “Red Campion” but both my local experts said “Pink” so I will stick with that.) was tucked under a tree in a shaded area. They also grow in more open areas, in general they are happy in light shade, on any damp soil that is not too acidic.

The campion attracts bees, butterflies and moths to feast on its nectar. Consequently you will often find campion seeds included in the sort of wildflower-seed-mix packets bought by gardeners who want a wild-flower area.

It is common in the North of Ireland but not so common in the rest of Ireland. It flowers through-out the summer from late April on.

Botanical Name: Silene dioica
