Old Sulehay flowers

A few flowers snapped during a very pleasant PBC trip to Old Sulehay. The pansy was the only example in Stonepit Quarry and is probably the first record for the site. The others were in the wood.

Toothwort is a curious plant. It is partly parasitic and partly insectivorous. It parasitises the roots of Hazel and other plants but also traps and digests insects in cavities formed by underground leaves.

Wild Pansy (Viola tricolor)

Arum Lilly (Zantedeschia Aethiopica)

Toothwort (Dentaria diphylla)
