This one's got me stumped! Growing at the edge of a woodland ride.
No interactions present.
Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. The flowers fit perfectly, although the leaves look quite different from some of the illustrations. It's in the new Flora for Northamptonshire and Peterborough at Bedford Purlieus.
Graeme, A. xanthochlora is thought to be extinct in VC32. I need to go back and check - hope I can find it again! I'm not sure about the upper surface of the leaf, but I agree it doesn't look hairy in the photos.
From those images the pedicels appear to be pubescent = not xanthochlora, which the leaf shape/tooth shape should rule out anyway. Does not look at all like xanthochlora from those pics
Thanks for your comments. This plant has been confirmed as Alchemilla filicaulis subsp. vestita by the VCR. I've seen it several times since and am quite sure of the identification.
