Ragged Robin

 Feed in Moderation
  • Common Name: Ragged Robin
  • Latin Name: Lychnis flos-cuculi
  • Family Name: Caryophyllaceae
The Ragged Robin is high in saponins, which in sufficient doses can irritate mucous membranes and act as an appetite suppressant.  So athough this plant can be given as a small part of a varied diet, you should ensure that other plants that are high in saponins are not fed at the same time.
