Amphibious bistort (Persicaria amphibia)
Amphibious bistort is a fairly common and widespread member of the Knotweed family and can be found growing in water but also grow on drier ground which can be some distance away from water. The plant is native to most of mainland Europe and also occurs in parts of Asia, in North America and in South Africa. Amphibious bistort was also used as a medicinal herb; the Physicians of Myddfai, the 12th century herbalists and healers based at Myddfai village, used it in remedies for fever.
