Also a robust plant, so is good within grassland, and it can spread quite easily as the seeds are wind dispersed. It looks great in a cottage garden, border or at the woodland edge. This is a lovely versatile wildflower which may also be called Raspberries and Cream!
The pink flowers are very popular with both bees and butterflies such as the Small Tortoiseshell and Red Admiral.
