Alexanders

(127/365) Smyrnium olusatrum better known as Alexanders HGGT! This plant grows in profusion here in SE Ireland, the road verges are covered in it during April & May. Now considered to be a native Irish plant, having been introduced prior to 1500 AD, it is widely naturalised, particularly near the coast. The flowers are much loved by pollinating insects.

 

Photo 19/100 for the 100 Flowers 2018 Group. This year I'm challenging myself to photograph 100 different wildflowers found growing in the Irish countryside as listed on www.wildflowersofireland.net
