Distribution: Fairly common in England and Wales, but rare in Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Flowering months: Between May and July.

Special features: The beautiful yellow flowers of the Yellow Archangel have tiny red streaks running through them. The leaves have a similar appearance to stinging nettles, but if you pinch the leaves, instead of stinging you, they give off an unpleasant smell.
