Himalayan Balsam

by Adrian Morris August. 25, 2020 252 views

This beautiful plant grows in great profusion in damp areas around where I live. Unfortunately it is not a native species but a garden escapee. As such it is sometimes seen as unwelcome because it crowds out indigenous plants and attracts few insects. It is beautiful though.

Himalayan balsam is robust enough to grow through the wrecked remains of an abandoned car.
