Yellow Bartsia on Raasay

Another grass seed alien has emerged near the new ferry terminal – Parentucellia viscosa (Yellow Bartsia).  This is almost a first for VC 104.  There is a specimen of this plant labelled Raasay 1936 in K Blackburn’s herbarium but  is not mentioned in Harrison’s Flora dated 1937 and Blackburn was part of his team so I had previously thought that this was a labelling error. Anyway, it is here now!
