This amazing flower is the same species as the Common Goat's Beard found in meadows.  They come in a range of colours, from yellow to purple.

It needs to germinate in the Autumn to get established and has beautiful closed seed heads.  Known as a vegetable plant, the long slender roots can be eaten and taste like oysters.

Stunning in a meadow but, unless it is very lightly managed by grazing animals will struggle to spread.  It will, however, grow well in a margin or road verge that is cut once in August.
