    Any ideas - Can't be rare - lots of them on the banks of the Yarrow today.

    Can't see anything similar in my two reference books - Blacks & Collins.

    Thanks.

    Hi Anith,

    It does look like scurvy grass, but the flower shown has five petals!

    Looks like a Claytonia, no idea which one though Sibirica looks about the closest.

    Yes, the picture certainly looks spot on.

    Is this a wild flower? and is it common?


    Thanks a lot.

    According to this site it is native to Siberia and the west coast of America and is naturalised in the UK.

    We had a bit of a trim around our club lake the other day, I always have a good walk about first just to mark any wild flowers and came across several of these orchids. I'm thinking they might be Northern Marsh Orchids, but I might well be wrong. Any help properly identifying them would be much appreciated.
    Cheers
