Description:

Unsure if this is common or water figwort. Leaves quite pointed and stems very slightly winged (4 angled) though not prominently so. Am leaning towards common figwort..... Habitat near freshwater pond though!

If you look at the third

If you look at the third photograph showing the buds you can make out the wide papery border of the sepals, making it S. auriculata.
