Butterbur again

Paul Green spotted the Giant Butterbur patch near the car park in Builth Wells last week. See his pictures on his blog. Meanwhile I spotted a patch of the same species in Cwmdu - which I had been told about by one of my recording group last year. This was on the way to Abergavenny. On the way back we stopped for coffee at the Cafe - highly recommended to all those who, like us, have passed many times and not stopped. (Mynydd Ddu Tea Rooms) So here are some pictures of this Butterbur site.
Giant Butterbur or Yr alan mwyaf, Petasites japonicus on the verge in Cwmdu
Not a typical habitat for this species and there was none on the other side of the hedge that I could see - so maybe off a lorry tyre ?
