When I was a child these were one of our most common wildflowers, but intensive farming has reduced them so much that they are now an endangered species in the wild and heavily protected, so it is illegal to disturb a wild one or pick the flowers. But they are being cultivated and grown as garden plants, so there is no danger of our losing them altogether. These are in the Jephson Gardens, Leamington Spa.
