Feral buddleia
I'm currently taking part in a 7 day challenge on Facebook to post a photo of some aspect of nature each day. So far I've already posted all the photos here, but this is one I took yesterday en route to buy food for dinner.

The weather is not at all conducive to going out for walks, but I spotted this feral buddleia growing by the fence between a builders' merchant's yard and the Co-op car park.

Buddleia

Current Mood: working working

That is SO pretty!

Thanks. It is a pretty shrub, though it's something of a weed because it spreads so easily. This is obviously an escapee from a garden. It's not a native plant at all, originally coming from the Himalayas, I think.

Beautiful. Feral flora. Around here, the feral flora tends to small weedy things and prickly pear.

Our truly wild flowers tend to be small, like the little pink flowers I posted the other week. But this is literally feral, meaning that its parent lived in a garden and scattered its seeds to the wind so this one has managed to grow on the fence line between two car parks.
