Identifying wildflowers

Here are twelve of the plants that are flowering in the park, at the moment, in the middle two weeks of May. They are captioned with their local common names, their scientific names and a brief description of their habitat. The header picture is of red campion (Silene dioica) which grows in woodland and at the edges of fields.
