I like the fact that Silene dioica takes its name from the merry god of the woodlands, the old rustic god of the dance of the wine press. He could tell a good tale.
Each plant has flowers of one sex only (dioica – two halves), so that two plants are needed to make seed. It provides nectar for bumble-bees and many butterflies, for instance orange-tips and small whites.
Apparently the crushed seeds can be used for snake-bites, another name for it being Adder’s flower. As far as I know our indigenous snakes are not particularly poisoness and I have already drawn two plants that boast the ability to cure their bites. The boiled roots can be used to make a soap.
