Thunderflower

A name given to a number of plants, viz FIELD BINDWEED (Convolvulus arvensis), OX-EYE DAISY (Leucanthemum vulgare), RAGGED ROBIN (Lychnis flos-cuculi), WHITE CAMPION (Silene latifolia), RED POPPY (Papaver rhoeas), and STITCHWORT (Stellaria holostea). Usually, such a name implies that if a child picks any of the flowers, thunder will ensue before the day is out. Perhaps the prohibition acted as a way to stop children damaging a crop by trying to gather the cornfield flowers. Would they want to pick bindweed, though?
