The very tall (2.5m+) stem of this not-too-popular plant... In a hedge/woodland edge.
No interactions present.
Where abouts in Lyme Regis did you find these? I am doing a research project looking at Giant Hogweeds in the British Isles and this involves getting samples for DNA analysis etc. Do you have a grid ref or specific location for this population?
It was alongside the R. Lim as you walk NW along it out of Lyme Regis (from around the DinosaurLand Museum area) - I don't have a grid ref, but it should be easy enough to spot (it wasn't all that far away and there were other specimens). Hope that helps,
Thank-you Dave. I will try to visit this weekend.
Good luck Amy - keep going until you're past the edge of Lyme and onto a hard-surfaced track,
