Another Plant ID

Question

Sorry, another plant ID!

 

All taken in May in Croatia and growing wild by a stony track.

 

First 2 about 12- 18 inches tall. Some sort of Bugloss?

 

Last one ground cover, about 3-4 inches tall.

 

Any help greatly appreciated!

 

John.

Hi John.

 

The first two pictures I initially thought were Betony (stachys officinalis) but can't be 100% sure. You may have to take it as a starting point for further investigation.

 

The last picture is Hare's-foot Clover or simply Hare's-foot (trifolium arvense).

 

Hope that's helpful.

I'll agree with Brian on #2 as Trifolium arvense.

 

#1 is puzzling me as well.  The whorl spacing is too large for Betony and the individual flowers not prominent enough.  I don't have a flora that covers Croatia so I can't check among the Labiates for a match but I'd be inclined to look for a Stachys species, possibly Stachys germanica though that's normally more hairy.

I need more research into no 1, but no 2 seems to be Trifolium arvense.

 

No 1 has stumped the other half as well, and she usually says straight away what things are (although she didn't know no 2 either!).

 

Thanks both, very helpful.

 

John.
