    Agrostemma githago, the common corn-cockle.

    A medium to tall (up to 1m +) annual with long, narrow and softly hairy leaves. The large (up to 3.5cm across) pinky purple flowers are borne singly on a long stem and are surrounded by long pointed sepals. The flowers are followed by a straw coloured flask like seed head containing large (3.5mm) black, rough textured seed.

    note: all parts of the plant are poisonous (githagin, agrostemmic acid).

    Sow in spring where the plants are to stand.
