Rose bay willow herb

Rose bay Willow herb has two common folk names, fire weed and bomb weed, and used to be mainly restricted to woodland glades. Its seeds require high temperatures to germinate and land clearance and bombing during World War 2 created the right conditions for it to thrive and expand its roam. It's now found frequently on waste ground and verges.
