Exmoor : Wimbleball - Rosebay Willowherb
Named after its long, narrow, willow like leaves, the willow-herb grows as an upright spike covered with pink/purple flowers.The purble plant is Rosebay Willowherb.
Rosebay willow-herb, or fireweed, was a rare native species which suddenly began to spread in about 1860, perhaps as a result of genetic change; it is now everywhere, except the far west of Ireland, and is abundant on waste land round towns, in cleared woodland and road side verges.
