Reseda lutea whole Reseda lutea close

Reseda lutea looks quite similar to the introduced Reseda alba but with distinctly yellower flowers and slighlty narrower flower spikes. It is an opportunistic plant and will populate waste ground and even the central reservations of motorways.

Reseda lutea is very common in southern, central and eastern England but infrequent in Wales, Scotland and Ireland.
