Help! Revisited Again

There seems little doubt that the plant from the Coire Làgan path is Phyteuma spicatum (Spiked Rampion). Some folks with expert knowledge have yet to give their final views but this is definitely the consensus. The native form is white but the form that escapes from gardens is blue and sometimes called subsp. coeruleum. This is only the second Scottish record and what it is doing part-way up the Cuillin is anyone’s guess.
