Dutch Vroege Vogels radio reports that a flowering plant species, new for the Netherlands, has been discovered on Ameland island.

It is Limonium binervosum, rock sea lavender. This species used to be endemic to Britain and Guernsey, Wikipedia says. And Spain and France, Vroege Vogels says.

Over 100 rock sea lavender plants have been found recently on Ameland, making it the most northerly and easterly place for this species.
