Creamy Candles

Denise spotted a new plant in one of our regular walks today. We have identified them as Stackhousia monogyny or ‘Creamy Candles’ after following the key at PlantNET. Without the flower head the plant is quite inconspicuous we cannot say if this plant stays around for summer or not. The spot it grows in is quite mossy over winter but dry over summer.
