Bogbean - Menyanthes (trifoliata)?

Found at Oats Royd early May. A native plant and not very common in Calderdale.
Thanks To Hugh Firman for the info.


  1. Certainly looks like bogbean. If so it is native and not very widespread in Calderdale. It's not normally invasive in my experience.

  2. Thanks for the info Hugh.

    I thought that they were a non-native and invasive species.
    Its a very nice plant.
