Purple loosestrife and water lilies
Purple loosestrife and water lilies
Purple loosestrife (Lythrum salicaria) prefers chalky soil but can also be found beside rivers in mildy acid areas, where it grows, with its roots in the water, in the vicinity of ponds and lakes. The colour of its flowers varies from white to pink and deep purple.

The yellow water-lily is a common plant of still or slow-moving water and can frequently be found growing in ponds, lakes, canals and ditches. It has large lily pad leaves which can measure up to 40cm across, and grows in water up to 3 metres deep with its leaves floating on the surface. It flowers from June to September and smells like the dregs of wine, hence its common name 'Brandy Bottle'. For a wider view of this location see > Link.
