A clifftop rarity

It was Andy – self confessed ‘Non-Botanist’ – that put the flag up. He’d found some unusual Broomrape here on the cliff tops. Tony got excited, and after some research made a positive identification. Although it’s the scare Purple Broomrape it is a very rare yellow variant. A rare, bright and beautiful plant.

It’s wild

I’m told it’s even rarer than the Early Spider Orchids we saw the other day. Beautiful foliage of a deep blue green; yellow flowers that came straight from a Van Gough palette fashioned into tubes of intricate design … and someone named it Wild Cabbage!
