Bladder Campion Silene vulgaris

Bladder Campion Silene vulgaris

Flores > Caryophyllales > Caryophyllaceae

A common wildflower found in meadows, forests and fields. Easy recognizable with its bell-shaped white/pink flower. The young shoots may be used as foot. Young leaves are served in salads while older leaves are boiled or fried.

The bell-form shape of the flower is the distinguishable characteristic of this species.

In summer, I see this flower frequently in meadows in different parks with large patches of meadows.
