There is a superficial similarity but ground ivy flowers are purplish rather than reddish there are other differences too

Not ground ivy

Hi Mark,

Thanks, that's very helpful. We've got acres of it in the area (Westhay, Somerset) and I was hoping to find it being used by bumblebees but no: maybe not a good pollen or nectar source?
