Rorippa amphibia Rorippa amphibia Rorippa amphibia

This is the largest of the native Yellow-cresses with stems over 1 m in height. The leaves are toothed at the top and sometimes lobed at the bottom but the flowers look like generic yellow crucifers.

R. amphibia is quite common in England and on the Welsh borders but only found in the borders of Scotland and there it may well have been introduced. It is common in Ireland.
