Rosebay Willowherb, St Bartholomew's Churchyard
Rosebay Willowherb, St Bartholomew's Churchyard, taken 7 years ago
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.
