At the end of a Devon WFS meeting of the Wild Flower Society, one of our party mentioned wood where the Heath Lobelia was growing. This is a national rarity and I expected one or two plants but they were present in full flower in their thousands in various clearings throughout this nature reserve.

This species is now restricted to a very few sites mostly along the south coast of England with none to be found in Scotland, Ireland or Wales.
