Pink-sorrel at Lizard Point

with No Comments
Many of the spring flowers on the coast of the far south of Cornwall are yellow (Lesser Celandine), white (Sea Campion and Three-cornered Garlic) or blue (Spring Squill) at the moment so this shocking pink flower really stood out on the South West Coast Path near Lizard Point.

Insight into Pink-sorrel (Oxalis articulata): this plant was introduced to Britain, it’s a native of South America, and is now found commonly in the south west of England. It typically flowers in May to October and is found on waste ground, roadsides and coastal sites.

Like the other pink-sorrels it spreads with bulbils.
