This beautiful flower is sometimes referred to as a weed because it grows in fields where crops are also growing. But it is one of the prettiest and most delicate plants on the machair.

The colour of the flowers is very variable – sometimes they are bright yellow, others are painted with purple blotches. See how many different ones you can find!
