Heliotropium indicum - Blue Scorpion Tail, (Indian Heliotrope), Family: BORAGINACEAE, an ANNUAL herb, sprang up when Governor Gore Pond dried out completely, (Governor Gore's Bird Sanctuary). Although it is a pantropical weed, it had only been recorded in Cayman by Wilfred Kings, biologist on the 1938 Oxford University Expedition to the Cayman Islands. This is the only place and only year that I have seen it.
Seaside Heliotrope - Heliotropium curassavicum, a very common annual herb, also appeared.
