Artist's Description

These wildflowers are small but once they’re blooming the bright pink will draw attention. It is rumored that the name comes from a town in England where these flowers were common, but it is also said the man who named it was actually looking at a close relative, not this flower at all.

In our area they grow in loamy clay soil where there is full sun and the ground doesn’t stay terribly wet. They are quite common in fields and by the roadside. It appears the are introduced from Europe and have made a home here.

Bee flies like them.

This picture was taken in Green Lane, Pennsylvania, on June 24, 2011.
