A usually hairless annual with a stiff stem marked with purple blotches. It has an inflated papery calyx which rattles when shaken and flat yellow flowers. Flowering from May until September, it prefers undisturbed grassland such as chalk downland, hay meadows and dry dune slacks.
This is our straight yellow rattle seed. Yellow Rattle is very popular, because it helps supress grass growth.
Most of our mixtures already contain Yellow Rattle, although you may add this in yourself and allows more wildflowers to grow. It is a semi-parasitic annual.
