Rishworth – Meadows and miscellaneous

I have been out a lot yesterday and today. Here are a whole ton of things of interest.

Above we have Wild Angelica Angelica sylvestris. It is a common plant along streams and brooks, as it enjoys wet soils. Bees also enjoys the very round umbrella-like flowers, hence the name of the type of flower, umbellifer.

Above, we have Bird’s Foot Trefoil Lotus corniculatus.  A common meadow plant it is a member of the pea family and also the foodplant of the Common Blue butterfly.

The above fern is Common Male Fern Dryopteris filix-mas.

Common Figwort Scrophularia nodosa above, quite a peculiar plant.

The above is Sowbread, also known as Cyclamen hederifolium.

I do not know if this is Mugwort or Monks Hood, it was growing in a field.

Above, is Wild Honeysuckle Lonicera periclymenum.

Is this Common Knapweed or Greater Knapweed?

I was rather amazed to find this Scented Mayweed Matricaria chamomilla.

Then this is Feverfew Tanecetum parthenium.

Then finally to finish up, White Stonecrop Sedum album.

Common Vetch

After noting the seedling 2 months ago, it was nice to see the plant which seeded itself under our pea trellis in the garden, was in flower.

I am pretty sure it is Common Vetch Vicia sativa.

Pale Flax?

Found this here in Rishworth. I have got it down to Linum Sp. but I suspect Pale Flax Linum bienne.

Rishworth Plant Walk

I went for a plant walk today. A couple of IDs please.

I believe this is The Variegated Subspecies of Yellow Archangel Lamiastrum galeobdolon subsp. Argentatum.

I know of this plant’s subspecies at two sites here in Rishworth.

Above is a picture of Fox and Cubs Pilosella aurantiaca

Above is the local Harebell Campanula Rotundifolia population.

Below are first a Hard Fern Blechnum spicant and then two of the Broad Buckler Dryopteris dilatata.

Rishworth – Pink Toadflax

Along with some Purple Toadflax, I found a few of these, Pink Toadflax.

I assume they are a cultivar of Common Toadflax x Purple Toadflax? Any comments welcome.
