Rosebay Willowherb, St Bartholomew's Churchyard
Rosebay Willowherb, St Bartholomew's Churchyard
Named after its long, narrow, willow like leaves, the willowherb grows as an upright spike covered with pink flowers.
Rosebay willowherb, 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.
