It grows in great profusion along the River Tees in N E England.  Indeed, it
is quite a common native plant in northern England and southern
Scotland (though I also know it on the Isle of Skye).  Not sure 
this really helps you much. I enjoy sucking the fruits when 
walking or adding them to fruit salads - they taste of aniseed.
