Cynoglossum amabile - a new non-native species for Wexford

 I took these 3 photos back in Sept 2013 of this blue flower at Ballyconlore, but only just realised I had never put a name to the picture. This would seem to be the first record for Ireland of Cynoglossum amabile. It does not seem a very common garden escape as I have only been able to trace one other record from Wales. The flowers are said to be liked by bees.
