Wild Flowers - Water plants
The plants on this page are not sorted by colour, but they are all water plants that are only likely to be found in, or at the edge of, rivers, ditches or pools.
The Botanical Society of Britain & Ireland has a page with links to books, websites and downloadable files to help you identify wild plants.
A useful free guide was produced by the National Plant Monitoring Scheme.
A useful book is “Collins complete guide to British Wild Flowers”.
