Yellow Rattle is an annual plant that has toothed, paired leaves and small yellow flowers with minute violet markings on the upper lip. It is hemi-parasitic on some grasses and is often sown in an attempt to weaken vigorous grass growth.
It is a most attractive flower and the seeds form in small capsules which rattle when shaken.
Yellow rattle can be sown as seed in the autumn months or planted in early Spring as a plug plant - grown amongst suitable grass.
Plant a good number together in patches, not the odd one dotted around. These Yellow Rattle plug plants have been sown together with a meadow grass which acts as a host.
Only £34.50 for 50 plugs or £76.50 for 150 plugs.
Minimum order of plug plants is 50, but it can be a mix of species.
