What a fantastic find Almost worth a visit just to see it.
Quite a rare specimen, normally found in the Mediterranean countries.
This is now the second population in Shropshire and a large one at that - it was past it's best but I saw at least 15 spikes along the verge. I was visiting with BBC Radio Shropshire to do an interview about the find with Roy Mantle, our county recorder. It was great to finally get to see it and while we were there it had another local naturalist visit to get photos. It's an amazing thing!
