Yellow Rattle

Rhinanthus minor

In meadows and pastures the Yellow Rattle is abundant, where it is parasitical upon the roots of other plants. The yellow flowers render it very conspicuous, and its identity is readily established by the light green inflated calyx.

The flowers will be found from May to August.
