Weld (Reseda luteola)
Weld (Reseda luteola)
Growing in the stonework of the ruined lime-kiln at Kiln Point, near Budle Bay.
Although native in some parts of the country, its range has been greatly extended by cultivation since it produces an excellent yellow dye and was grown commercially until quite recently. A local name is Dyer's Rocket. The other two plants traditionally used for this purpose were Woad (blue) and Madder (red). It was used to dye the robes of the Vestal Virgins in Roman times.
