NORWICH: Perfoliate Alexanders

25th April 2019

I received an email from Jo Parmenter to say that she had found the invasive non-native species Perfoliate Alexanders growing along the shady bit of riverside path near Pull's Ferry. I went along after work to have a look so that I would recognise it again, and this immediately paid off as I found another six plants about 1km along the river. This species is sometimes grown in gardens, but it is illegal to allow it to spread into the wider environment. By the time this blog is posted hopefully the plants will have been removed to prevent further spread.
