Ragged Robin grows in marshes, wet meadows and damp woodlands. The plant has a tall slender flowering stem. The petals are divided into four thin segments with forked white scales. The reddish brown sepals form a tube with short teeth below the flower. The flowers are usually pink but can be white. It was once believed that if picked thunder and lightning would occur.
