Devil's-Bit Scabious, Succisa pratensis.

Devil's-Bit Scabious, Succisa pratensis.
The story goes that this plant got its name due to the fact that it has an abruptly truncated, short root and the explanation for this was that the devil bit it off in a fit of annoyance at the medicinal properties of the plant. This wildflower is the main larval foodplant of the Marsh Fritillary butterfly.
