Aubrieta deltoidea

Aubrieta deltoidea (L.) DC. (SE-Eur., SW-As.) – A very rare, locally naturalised escape from cultivation. Found in a road verge in Dadizele in 1966 (doubtlessly ephemeral). More or less naturalised populations were discovered on old walls in Colfontaine and Thuin in 2008. Surely overlooked and neglected elsewhere in Belgium.
