    First a fungus (thanks for the help on that) now a plant. This was growing on a slate cliff at the back of a beach in Dumfries and Galloway, turning from green to bright red in September.

    I think it may be a form of Houttuynia - but other than that I can't help you I'm afraid! Lou

    Looks unlikely in that case. The plant in question had thick fleshy leaves. Thanks Ken.

    Might be wild violet http://www.msuturfweeds.net/details/_/wild_violet_17/
    The leaves disappear in winter and the leaves are pretty tough (should know, I've been trying to get them out of my garden for years)

    Not so sure Jacqi, the habitat doesn't seem right and the leaves don't look as thick. Thanks for the suggestion though.

    It looks like a ground cover plant called Ajuga. There are about 40 different species so you may have to hunt for an exact match but the leaves look very similar.
