From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 3:40 pm on 3 April 2020

This week’s critter is the small willowherb, Epilobium angustum. A beautiful Naturally Uncommon plant that has love heart-shaped petals and small copper-coloured leaves. Doc's Nicola Toki says they grow in the amazing habitat of ephemeral wetlands – in areas shaped by glaciers, controlled by water and home to many other threatened plant species.
