You find interesting plants in weird places on Guernsey. This is a well known site for this plant which is a pavement weed  at this particular site. It is a South American introduction often planted in gardens but here established in the wild and waste places as a weed for some time.

N. borbonicum has escaped sucessfully to Channel Island sites but rarely anywhere else except for a few places in the south east of England.
