Bladder Campion

It is not hard to see how this flower got its name. Behind the flower is a seed box that is bladder shaped hence, bladder campion. This makes the flower quite distinctive and easily separated from white campion which is really the only species you could possible mistake it for.

My book describes this as a common flower and, indeed, I used to see it frequently on the chalk hills of Hampshire but since moving to Dorset I have seldom seen it but when I have it has been associated with chalk.


The records for this species have been organised into reports, charts, maps and photos. Click a pic below to see the detail:
