Royal Catchfly

It seems to me that there aren’t very many red wildflowers in the fields surrounding the Celery Bog, in fact, the Royal Catchfly is the only one I recall seeing at any given time throughout the year. If I had to guess, I’d say it’s because there aren’t very many pollinators in these parts that are attracted to the color red. If I had to guess.
