Lychnis - Lychnis flos-cuculi

Lychnis: Generalities

Fior Cuculo grows strictly in the countryside and in marshes or marshy areas. The name attributed to the flower from the rural tradition is to be traced back to the formation on the trunk of the plant of white and soft matter, similar to cotton. The meaning of the Fior Cuculo in the language of flowers is instead linked to the serrated shape of the flowers of the plant, which recall the industriousness and ingenuity, synonymous with careful application and sophistication; the shape of the flowers is indeed very special.
