Silene noctiflora (Night-flowering Catchfly) first Co. Wexford record since 1992
I was walking around a swede field today at Ballylusk and came across lots of Night-flowering Catchfly around the margin of two fields. This is only the 5th record for the county. First time I have seen this catchfly in over 20 years. Like other catchflies it is a rather sticky plant. There was also a scattering of Treacle Mustard, another rare weed in the county. A few Corn Marigolds and lots of Corn Mint.
