Ficaria verna 'Brazen Hussy'
The species of common lesser celandine was formerly known as Ranunculus ficaria. Here, on the waste woodland of Heddon Common, a likely garden escape, this cultivar of the plant was named by Christopher Lloyd who gardened at Great Dixter in East Sussex TQ8125 : Great Dixter. The plant is said to have been found in a local wood around 1967 by his head gardener, Romke van de Kaa. It has dark purple, glossy leaves with prominent veins and bears its large bright yellow single flowers on long stalks.
