Geranium reuteri (Canary Herb-robert) new for Wexford

 Was surprised to see Geranium reuteri (Canary Herb-Robert) self-sown on a roadside wall today near Pollpeasty. This is a native of the Canaries. It has been a very mild winter in Wexford. G. reuteri seems to be hardy as I have had it growing in my garden for 10 years. G. reuteri is like a very large Geranium robertianum (Herb-Robert). I am surprised that two new species have been added to the county list so early in the year.
