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.

  1. The florist made my corsage for prom and it was stunningly beautiful!! They design your flowers with great taste and love. Best Flowers NYC in the city, it’s a small store at the corner, but all their designs are special.
