Yellow-wort
A closer look at a large patch of yellow flowers today proved to be a new species record for Rye Harbour Farm. Yellow-wort (Blackstonia perfoliata) was last recorded at Rye Harbour in 1982. It is a member of the Gentian family and is common on chalky soils, so not common in the RX area.
