At first glance I thought I had found small yellow flowers at a naked spot in the hills.
Looking closer I discovered it was just some yellow leaves.
The whole plant is just about 1 cm. There were several of them.



Three months of severe drought have killed most of the smaller vegetation at the heather hills. I suppose some seeds were triggered into germination two weeks ago after a few rain showers. I guess this unusual leave color is an indication of lack of water in the sandy soil and the nutrients it should carry.

We will see if they will survive.

Troels,

It will be interesting to see if those tripartate leaves turn green as part of their natural development, or if it is indeed drought that is making them yellow. It would not be too surprising if the normal course for these seedlings is to put out green colyledons, then true leaves that start out yellow and turn green as they mature.

Please keep us posted. Very Happy

--Chris S.

Any update to the leaves.
Understand that it might be a trek out for one little plant, but very interested in this one.

I must admit, that I got sidetracked by other projects and forgot to visit the place untill yesterday.

After great amounts of rain the whole area was green again with small and larger plants. But none looking like the shape of the tiny yellow.

So Chris' explanation is as good as mine untill somebody finds evidence for one or the other.
