roaming the wilds of south west Surrey
Beautiful, Lucy. 🙂
Thanks Mike! 🙂
It’s beautiful, isn’t it!
That’s beautiful – almost ethereal!
Thank you, they’re gorgeous, aren’t they.
You are right Lucy, odd name but beautiful flower!
Thanks Phil, it’s one of my favourites.
A beautiful flower. I first thought it was a magnificent shrub (no, the name didn’t give me a clue). I had to search on the internet and it comes up as a native pond/bog plant excellent for pollinators and dragonflies, so then it all made sense.
It’s got attractive trifoliate leaves as well Amelia – in fact the Latin name is Menyanthes trifoliata, and is used in herbal medicine too. It’s taking over the pond a bit, but I can’t bring myself to mind too much. 🙂
Gorgeous plant. What would be a more suitable / glamorous name? ‘Fluffy Star” surely isn’t dignified enough.
Ooh that’s a great name for it RH – perfectly descriptive!
