No. of stamen?

James, do you know how many stamen were on each flower? As far as I know, that's the easiest way to distinguish between Wavy Bitter-cress (6 stamen) and Hairy (4).

Strangely, it also seems that Wavy B-C has hairy stems but Hairy does not!

Re. stamen

No I don't, but now I know I can have a look next time I'm that way, so thanks. There are lots of plant families that I have ignored in the past so I'm trying to look closer at some of them this year!
