Native annual of medium height (up to 60cm) with golden yellow flowers from May to July.  
Yellow Rattle is a useful plant to introduce when creating a wild flower meadow.  It is semi-parasitic on the roots of plants, especially grasses, and once established will reduce the vigour of the original grass by up to 50%.  It fixes its roots onto the root system of an adjoining grass, extracting water and minerals from it. 

Sow at the rate of 1g per square meter with wildflowers or 3g per square meters on it's own.

Yellow Rattle is an annual and so if used in a meadow, it is best to cut the meadow after the rattle has had a chance to seed ie after the end of July.
