45. Wall Pennywort

The name Pennywort refers to the circular leaves which resemble coins with a depression in the centre. On rocks and old stone walls, and on stony banks, it may be found, the new leaves appearing in the early Spring. The flowers appear from May to August, and the flowering spike varies from six to eighteen inches in height. Its distribution is mainly along the western side of Britain.
