Congratulations to all of you who guessed Cuckoo flower (Cardamine pratensis) or as it is more commonly known Lady’s smock. First a bit about the clues: Foul wreck coo, is of course an anagram of cuckoo flower and the second (though hardly needed) clue: Many insects may have clocked up a visit or two, refers to cuckoo clocks, from which you might guess cuckoo flower.
A member of the Brassicaceae family, the perennial cuckoo flower with its long narrow leaves can grow to 40-60 cm tall and has pale pink flowers that grow on a spike. Much loved by the Orange tip butterfly, this elegant plant flowers from April to June and can be found in moist or wet habitats, that might include damp grasslands, roadsides and river banks.
A picture of a cuckoo flower can be found here.
Did you know?: According to folk lore, the cuckoo flower is sacred to fairies and is therefore unlucky to be brought indoors.
Keep an eye out for next weeks mystery flower.
