Wildflowers on the Conservation Area – Photographs by: Peter Land
A mixture of those already present, and those seeded by OBCG. All species identification subject to confirmation – please contact us if you disagree with any of these.
Pictures are arranged in alphabetical order of the main common name, for example look for Lesser Stitchwort under ‘S’.
Considerable variation in colour.
To be found along the bottom fence.
The burdocks grow very strongly, but in late July the flowers were a riot of various species of bee.
Also known as Goosegrass, Beggar’s lice, Catchweed Bedstraw, Cleaverwort, Everlasting Friendship, Grip Grass, Scratch grass, Stick-a-back, Sticky Willie, Scarthgrass, White Hedge.
Also known as Old Man’s Beard or Traveller’s Joy. This grows on the fences on the north and west sides of the Conservation Area.
Fool’s Parsley can be identified by the bracts hanging down below the flowers, and is poisonous.
