A unique and rare species of flower has been kept blooming by walkers flattening through mud in area of Angel seyon a coastal path. A species that is part of the buttercup family, which is a three lobed water-crowfoot is capable to grow because walkers are disturbing the ground around it. That also gives rise to tiny plants that grows in puddles, shallow pools, and even tractor and hoof tracks.
The water-crowfoot, a rare flower plant has to grow in spring season quickly because the channels dry out in summer that is favorable to its natural growth. According to Trevor Dines from Plant life Cymru statement there are fewer than 20 plants that are growing in a ditch on the path including the water-crowfoot.
As there are no sheep or cattle to disturb the mud so the plants depend entirely on walkers that cross the ditch on the coastal path and this mud loving crowfoot likes nothing more than creeping through filthy ditches, ruts and shallow pools looks glorious to eyes.
According to plant life experts the flower is also springing up along the tracks and is now growing in more sites than ever before when animals move from pool to pool and in this way they also spread the seed with their hooves.
