Opposite-leaved Golden Saxifrage
 

 

Opposite-leaved Golden Saxifrage has no petals, but yellow-green sepals (that make up the outer ring of the flower) and yellow anthers (producing the pollen). As the name suggests, the leaves are on opposite sides of the stalk.

In flower from late winter to mid summer. Common in wet places, springs and beside streams, except in eastern England.

Alternate-leaved Golden Saxifrage is much less common.
