|This lovely picture depicts a bridge over the river Ecclesbourne in Derbyshire. Indian Balsam grows profusely along the banks of the stream. This plant was introduced to gardens in 1839. By the end of the nineteenth century it had naturalised itself all over Britain and is now considered an invasive species. It dominates riverbanks spreading its seeds by firing them explosively into the water ready to start again.
