Hi all

Just wondering if someone here can enlighten me on the ID of this plant.
I have some submersed growth pics and emersed also flowers.
Originally I hought it to be some type of Ludwigia , but the flower is not yellow and the leaf structure look different from any other ludwigia sp I have seen.

I hope some one can help.
I have never seen this plant anywhere except in this location.
In lower light (deeper water) it appears as in first pic. The red/ brown colour is only near surface.
Stem looks hairy when submersed but not emersed.

Hi all,
It's Veronica anagallis-aquatica. It is quite a common UK native, not sure about elsewhere.
cheers Darrel
