Reports of Floating Pennywort in Broadland

The Broads and Norfolk Rivers IDBs have recently received reports of Floating Pennywort (Hydrocotyle ranunculoides), a fast growing and highly invasive plant species in their Boards internal Drainage Districts, around the North Walsham Dilham Canal area and the River Ant.

The discovery of this plant in the catchments is a huge risk to our IDBs, both economically as well as ecologically and could seriously impact boards infrastructure if left unchecked.

Please spread the word on the severity of this plant and report any sightings to an IDB Environment Officer or to the Norfolk County Council’s Non Native Species Initiative using the following contact details:

When reporting a sighting, please include a grid reference if possible, using the following link: https://gridreferencefinder.com/
