The Pink Bog Pimpernel (Anagallis tenella) is a delicate perennial native to Europe and North America, flourishing in damp, acidic soils of heathlands, bogs, and wet moorlands. Characterized by its bright pink, fringed flowers measuring 10-12 mm in diameter, it blooms from June to September, providing vibrant colour amidst the greenery of its habitats. This low-growing plant forms mats with slender, creeping stems that can root at the nodes, spreading across moist grounds. Despite its rarity and vulnerability due to habitat loss and wetland drainage, conservation efforts are in place to protect it. The Pink Bog Pimpernel, while challenging to cultivate due to its specific requirements for moist, acidic soil and cool conditions, is occasionally grown in gardens designed to replicate its natural environment, showcasing its charming appearance.
