EUPHORBIACEAE


Mercurialis

Mercurialis perennis

Dog's mercury

The only record within the city was 03Q where it grows in the shady garden of a house in Salmon Grove. This could be a relic as Cardamine pratensis occasionally appears in great quantity in the gardens here. The 13L record is for a small woodland between Bilton and Ganstead, outside the city limits.
