Near the viewpoint, there is a patch of “White Bryony” Bryonia cretica, which is effectively colonising the area at great speed. A deciduous native, the growth is rapid from the perennial rootstock in spring. Tendrils grab at any potential support to haul the growth upwards to 3 metres or more in height. We have placed a tripod to entice growth up into the Birch tree. In the family Cucurbitaceae producing small white flowers composed of five petals with linear vein markings, these are followed by a crop of red berries.
