Rorippa sylvestris   Creeping Yellow-cress C DD N

Rorippa sylvestris

Creeping roots which give rise to new plants give this Rorippa its name but identification is via the larger flowers (than R. islandica or R. palustris) and thin fruits. It is found throughout England and Wales but is less frequent in Ireland and uncommon in central and northern Scotland.
