Wood Avens

A common plant of hedgerows and woodlands, wood avens is also known as ‘herb Bennet’. Small, quickly drooping, yellow flowers appear on slender stems from May to August and are a good source of nectar. Wood avens is also a food-plant of the caterpillars of the grizzled skipper butterfly.
