Can someone ID this blue wild flower for me please. It is growing in our lawn/wild flower meadow. If you look closely there are daisies, white clover, dandelions, dockens and buttercups here too.




I think this is Prunella vulgaris it has been on here a lot lately. Seems to love the wet conditions.

Agreed. Self-heal. Join the club!

This has just appeared in my lawn too (just noticed it today). Is it a nuisance and should it be removed. I've only got three small clumps at the moment, but it is very pretty

It will spread in a lawn, I would remove while you can Sheilar.
