Red campion flowers in a Whitfield Street tree pit

Red campion (Silene dioica) can flower all year round and is an important plant for flying insects.

This native British wildflower, Red campion (Silene dioica), is flowering in a tree pit in Whitfield Street, Fitzrovia.

This flower is one of a number of important pollinators and although not often seen on the streets of London is quite a common plant seen in woodlands and on roadside verges.

The flowers have grown from seed planted by the Friends group.
