Botanising in Scotland

On 13 and 14 June 2016, me and some other members of the Botanical Society of Britain and Ireland headed out around Lamington and Coulter in part of the upper Clydesdale recording week. It was fun and some of the plants we recorded on those days are shown below.

Common Butterwort Pinguicula vulgaris

Common Butterwort has sticky leaves which trap insects. This plant is also present on the side of the majority of the mountain trail up Ben Nevis.

Bitter-vetch Lathyrus linifolius
Common Rock-rose Helianthemum nummularium on steep (65°) and thus well drained bank
Brittle Bladder-fern Cystopteris fragilis growing out of the walls of a ruin
Marsh Yellow-cress Rorippa palustris in centre with the tough growing, Shoreweed Littorella uniflora at bottom right
Common Water-crowfoot Ranunculus aquatilis
Pink Purslane Claytonia sibirica
