I thnk this is a small specimen of Trifolium repens due to dry soil or effect of salt maybe

Can anyone identify this plant: the flowers were mauvish in heads about 5 x 8mm in size. Leaves about 13 x 7.5 mm. Stems slightly hairy with mainly spreading hairs. Hairs denser just near the heads of flowers. It grew near the coast late June, but I do not remembertri1.jpg where or if in sandy ground or otherwise. Don Hinson

    Re: A pea family plant found on Guernsey

    Hi

     

    I can't really tell from the picture due to the damage to the specimen, but the flowers look a lot like Clover which is in the leguminous pea family.

     

    There are hundreds of varieties.

     

    Hope this helps

     

    Regards
