NS3977 : Yellow Loosestrife

taken 3 years ago, near to Renton, West Dunbartonshire, Great Britain

Yellow Loosestrife
Yellow Loosestrife
(Lysimachia vulgaris)

The River Leven provides the backdrop. For context, see NS3977 : The River Leven; the flower was one of several that later sprang up on the margins of the sandy space shown in that picture.

For some reason, Yellow Loosestrife (shown nearby on the same bank of the Leven in NS3878 : Yellow Loosestrife) is often confused with the quite different-looking NS5272 : Dotted Loosestrife, a species to which it happens not to be very closely related; many pictures captioned "Yellow Loosestrife" are of Dotted Loosestrife instead. See the first of those links for more comments on the two species and the popular confusion between them.
River Leven (Dunbartonshire)
The River Leven (Uisge Leamhna in Gaelic) is a stretch of water in West Dunbartonshire, Scotland, flowing from Loch Lomond in the North to the River Clyde in the South. The total length of the river is approximately 6 miles.
