Yellow Rattle - Rhinanthus Minor
This is an annual that grows in low fertility grassland. It has distinct yellow flowers and is used to create breaks in the grass sward to allow other wildflowers to be sown.
The seed does not last in the soil for very long. It naturally seeds in June, these seeds lie in the soil and get the benefit of the cold winter weather before germinating in the spring.
