Oenothera x fallax on dunes south of Morriscastle

The above 3 pictures were taken this summer on the dunes south of Morriscastle. Ro FitzGerald first recorded this hybrid from the dunes in 1990. I sent my specimen to Rose Murphy the BSBI referee for Oenothera. Very glad that Rose agreed with my and Ro's ID. This hybrid evening-primrose grows in several spots on the dunes here. There are two other records for the county, both on waste ground. Neither of the parents grow on the dunes at Morriscastle.
