Amphibious Bistort at Powerstock Common

<p>Also known as water knotweed, this plant is more usually found in still water, although it can be found in moving water. The leaves float on the surface and although up to 6 inches or so long, are fairly inconspicuous until the plant flowers. When it does flower, it's identity as a bistort is obvious. This pic was taken at the small pond in the old railway cutting at Powerstock Common.</p>
