Alternate-leaved Golden Saxifrage (Chrysosplenium alternifolium) is a beautiful little plant that can be found in damp woodlands and on the banks of streams across Europe.
It's easily recognisable by its kidney-shaped leaves which are arranged alternately along the stem. The small, yellow flowers appear in early spring and attract a wide range of insects including bees, flies and beetles.
This plant is happy in shady locations and will spread quickly to form large colonies.
The best time to see Alternate-leaved Golden Saxifrage is from April to May when the plants are in flower. However, the leaves can be seen all year round.
