There is always something odd about seeing a plant which is incredibly rare in the British Isles and which has needed a day long slog into the Scottish wilderness to find and then coming abroad to discover it is a roadside weed. We saw this on so many occasions we stopped remarking upon it. The flowers can be distinctly mid yellow, pale yellow or almost white with yellow and purplish markings.
