The plants I found seem quite

The plants I found seem quite a lot smaller than those pictured above - is this just because it was early in the year?

Looking at the leaves, in some pictures I have found the leaves are much longer and thinner, growing more along the stem than these. Is there just quite a lot of variation in these plants, or are there 2 different plants with similar flowers?

Also, they didn't really grow upright, but along the ground more than the examples I've seen on the internet.
