Bullwort, Ammi majus in Norwich, 7 October 2022

With the discovery of Bullwort, Ammi majus in a partially dried out ditch in Wensum Park, Norwich by James Emerson recently I popped along yesterday.

Belinda and I were visiting my parents anyway so it was only a very slight detour and the plant was easily found. A member of the carrot family it does bear a similarity to the common Wild Carrot and goes by the alternative names of False Bishop's Weed and Laceflower among others. It's delicate lace-like flowers make it one of the most attractive of the carrot family.

The same ditch held loads of Celery-leaved Buttercup but with time getting on we didn't have time to explore further.
