Childing Pink (Petrorhagia nanteuilii) is an extremely rare plant species of flowering plant in the carnation family, Caryophyllaceae. Common names include childing pink, productive carnation, proliferous pink and wild carnation. It is an annual that grows to 50 cm tall. Leaves are linear, opposite and stem clasping. Small pink flowers are produced in small ovoid heads, with usually only one flower visible at a time. These are followed by ovoid seed capsules. It seems that there are only two recorded areas where this grows. One on the vegetated shingle at Pagham and the other on a plot of land jusy to the east of the Harbour Club on the river side of Shoreham Beach. Although this area is fenced and signeage exists, the plant is in danger of being overgrown by invasive grass and three cornered garlic. FoSB is delighted that Peter Wish from the Port Authority has encouraged his Rangers to help and advise us as to the removal of these invasive plants and also to restore damaged fencing and replace aged and illegible signs with new ones.
