Been getting into my wild flowers this year.

 

Found the following species in our ancient woodland.

 

Stitchwort

Lesser Cellendine

Lords and Lady's

Duke of Normandy

Pink Campions

Woodland sorrel

Blue bells

 

Now, I know stitchwort is an indicator species but what is its significance.

 

Are there any other flowers I should look out for what are important?

Nice thread Backpain. Looking to learn a lot more on this subject.

 

Any recommendations for a good book for identifying UK wild plants.

We have all sorts growing around us that I know nothing about.
