Description:

This plant arrived in my garden about 5 years ago, possibly during flooding by the river Ouse. It has spread rapidly by stems creeping along the clay-soil surface, particularly in shadier areas
It reaches about 60cm in height. The flowers from ?July through autumn, are pale pink, similar form to plantain, and much visited by bees and other flying insects (which is why I have not uprooted it).
