Hippurus vulgaris   Mare's-tail C DD N

Hippurus vulgaris whole Hippurus vulgaris whole

This plant does actually have flowers but they are very small and hard to find in a plant which always grows in water - often deeper than my wellies. H. vulgaris is distibuted all over the British Isles but there tend to be fewer sites in the west, Wales and Cornwall in particular.
