    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.


    Growing in my pond outside

    Emersed growth

    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

    Thank you. It looks to be exactly what it is.
    I have never seen it before and it is not very common here in NZ.
