Aliens in Portree

I haven’t yet got to the Rum records but in the meantime here is a picture of Euphorbia dulcis (Sweet Spurge) from Portee which I spotted whilst collecting Arabidopsis specimens:

In the same ground there is also Hypericum hirsutum (Hairy St John’s-wort), a first record for the vice-county.  I think this has to go down as an introduction as this is also the same ground as the Linaria repens (Pale Toadflax) that has been recorded for nearly fifty years and a variety of planted shrubs.

 I am on Islay for the next three days so Rum records will have to wait…….
