Unknown plant

Photo Description

I have no idea what this plant is, but it had, presumably, recently fired out a load of seeds.

If anyone has an idea what this might be please let me know in the comments.

  • the mammy

    If seen in ireland, could well be Rosebay Willowherb….very common “weed”….or “wildflower” if you prefer.

    • Cool. Never even heard of that! Let’s go with “wild flower” instead of “weed”, sounds nicer 🙂

      Someone on 500px said they thought it was one of the Epilobium species?

  • the mammy

    Just checked: Rosebay Willowherb’s Latin name is Epilobium Angustifolium.
    Loads of it here in our patch of ground, grows wild and quite attractive, but tends to take over…….

    • It did look very nice (I assume that’s what drew me to take a photo of it). Cool to know what it is too, thanks!
