Anagallis arvensis

Anagallis arvensis

Common name scarlet pimpernel
Family myrsinaceae
Life cycle annual
Flowers orange-red (spring-summer)

Bright green foliage, darling little orange-red flowers - it's hard to pull this one up sometimes. But it does seed itself around, so it's gotta get the heave-ho. I've seen marvellous photos of established plants just covered in flowers - but ours never get that far.
