Anagallis minima
(Map updated: March 2008)

This is a difficult plant to find on account of its very small size: about an inch (2.5 cm) tall with minute white flowers. It is found on bare heathy or sandy ground and appears to have declined over the past fifty years or so, but it may have been merely overlooked.

All names: Anagallis minima (L.) E.H.Krause; Centunculus minimus L.
