For A Flower A Day today, we are going from the frankly flamboyant flower yesterday to the starkly simple and humble pale knotweed* bloom. Simple it may look, but it makes up for this in the official name – Persicaria lapathifolia. Try saying that with a potato in your mouth (as my mother would have said). I like going back to the photographs of the wild plants around us, with their sometimes odd looking flowers. If I hadn’t set myself this project, there is a good chance I would never have noticed so many local interesting plants. I hope you are enjoying my photographic journey of discovery.
*Other names for this plant are pale smartweed, curlytop knotweed, and willow weed.
