This is a plant which merits inclusion here as it now appears to have established itself in the wild in several sites throughout the country. It is low-growing, carpeting the ground with pale green pinnate leaves. The flowers (2/3cm across) have five slightly lobed curved petals, each of which is yellow towards the centre of the flower with a large white area towards the outside. Five light green sepals support each flower. This annual plant blooms from May to September and it belongs to the family Limnnanthaceae.
I first recorded this plant near Ashford, Co Wicklow in 1988 and photographed it near Gibletstown, Co Wexford in 2007.
