    The whole plant is about 27" tall. Possibly yellowing slightly needing some decent dirt.

    The leaves look different, too. Beats me, sorry

    I thought Birds foot trefoil as well, but I'm uncertain about the leaves and the petals don't quite look right. It may also be one of the sages.

    Have sent the pics on to a botanist friend who really knows his stuff.

    Could you give some details of where you found it?

    It's got me beaten, and the decent wildflower searches online. There can't be many purple stem, yellow flower plants around!

    I think it's a hybrid,

    Can you put it in context? where was it found?
    Opinions are like arseholes....... we all have them, and most of them stink

    It should have been given a drink or a beer before the photoshoot as the flowers are closed, so an ID isn't easy. Did it come from a soggy end of the Fens?

    It looks like one of the buttercup/water lily family Ranunculus... Greater Spearwort?
    If I'm going to be accused of it then it's just as well I did it.

    I thinks it's unlikely to be a Ranunculus - they all have radially symmetric flowers, and this seems not to.
