Hi there,

I'd like to find out the name of the plant in this photograph. Can anybody help? It was found in a hedgerow in West Kent, UK, in June.

Thanks and best,
Thom

all I can think is that it would fit in brassicaceae, like Wild Rocket (Diplotaxis erucoides), or other white flowering brassicaceae

Hi Tofi,

Thanks so much for your reply! Looking into Wild Rocket online, the flowers and plant structure look right, but I don't think it's a match for the leaves on my plan. But searching around your other suggestion, I think you've found it - could it be Sweet Rocket (Hesperis Matronalis)? That looks about right to me...

Thank you,
Thom
