Saving England's most threatened species from extinction

Pheasant’s Eye

A very attractive plant with deep red cup-shaped flowers that resemble an anemone.

The petals have a dark basal spot with black anthers. Plants can grow up to 50 cm tall and are often branched. Although records are widespread throughout southern Britain with isolated sites as far north as central Scotland, it has never been abundant. The majority or remaining sites are restricted to Wiltshire and Hampshire.
