Fringe Cups

More delights from a walk by the river, somewhat understated perhaps until you look closely. The tall spikes of bell-shaped, green-white flowers, become pink with age, appear from May to July. The name comes from the deeply fringed habit of the petals. It is in fact an introduction from North America, escaped and naturalised from private gardens. Whilst it seems to be doing well making itself at home here it is listed as vulnerable in some of its native range.
