the seed rattling was seen as an indicator that the hay was ready to cut. The plant is considered to not be that good for cattle. The Glastir system in Wales doesn’t allow cutting of flower meadow hay until after 17th July, which would be rattling time…A semi-parasite/ hemi-parasite plant; it fixes it roots into the root system of an ajoining grass and extracts water and minerals from it.

It occurs in a great variety of forms and in the past was believed to be 6 different species.
