In August 2014 five of these plants were discovered near Ulvenhout. Last weekend we found two flowering plants and one vegetative well-developed lateral bud. The origin of these plants - intentional, unintentional or spontaneous settling - is unknown. DNA-analysis will hopefully show whether these plants belong to the Irish or North American population.
