Hi, I saw this plant growing in shallow water and I was wondering if anybody can identify it please? If it is suitable to grow in water I would like to get some for my wildlife pond. Many thanks in advance.

Hi Ashley some helpful suggestions from our social media followers:

"Looks like Menyanthus trifoliata?"
"Its a primula, so a bog plant not a water plant. Obviously the water has risen and flooded them."
"At a guess Primula rosea"

Hope that helps?

Might this be a bit small as it is only about 6” tall? Doesn’t primula rosea grow quite tall? Could it be primula farinosa?
