Stinking Willie

£12.50

Ragwort, also known as stinking willie, is a ubiquitous weed and wildflower across northern Eurasia. In the UK especially it has developed a bad reputation due to its toxicity to livestock.

Not only are the ragwort´s golden yellow flowers very cute but they are also very delicious to invertebrates. Ragwort flowers have been recorded as amongst the highest in nectar in the UK with at least 117 species feeding on ragwort flowers, 30 of which are completely reliant on ragwort for all of their food.

So here’s to stinking willie, long may his yellow daisy flowers invade our building sites and roadsides bringing bug life wherever they go.
