Very pretty, but sadly a very invasive introduction.

The River Usk has loads of these plants growing along the banks. Unfortunately swamping out the native plants.

Yeah, invasive plants tend to wipe out the native plants.

It is quite pretty though.

Lol, we have a number of species that fit the same bill. Beautiful but introduced and usually invasive. Fabulous picture D!

A nicely-taken image of these lovely flowers, Delia. Now, it reminds me that I have seen the same flowers somewhere recently but I can't remember where.
