Artist's Description

European Gorse is larger than the island’s native Western Gorse (Ulex gallii) and flowers much earlier in the year.

One of the island’s most common wild flowers, it is surprisingly not native to the island. European Gorse was brought to the island to create hedges and to use as winter feed for livestock.

The Manx name for gorse is “aadjin”.
