Buttercup family

March-August

This perennial or sometimes annual species grows in slow-flowing streams and rivers, coastal lagoons, shallow lakes, ditches, ponds and dune-slacks. It is difficult to define its ecological preferences, as it grows in the upper reaches of highly calcareous rivers but in some areas favours base-poor waters; it has a broad trophic range.

Barberry



 

Barberry is
Berberis vulgaris
fbarberrycolflot1

Barberry family

Flies and bees.

Red berries produced in September-October, which are eaten by the birds, who also use them for nest-sites. Bright lemon-yellow flowers in May-Jun. BARBERRY Family.

Use as a deciduous shrub in hedgerows and coppices, and on banks, cliffs and waste ground in deciduous woodlands. Use as external hedge where the sharp spines on the twigs and the sharply toothed leaves act as an animal or human deterrent. Its deleterious effect on wheat crops was appreciated before it was known to be a host of the rust Puccinia graminis and consequently eradicated from many hedgerows in the 19th century.

Larkspur (Rocket Larkspur, Annual Delpinium)

Larkspur (Rocket Larkspur, Annual Delpinium) is
Delphinium orientale
(Consolida orientalis, Consolida ajacis, Consolida ambigua)
larkspurcflowikimediacommons
Consolida orientalis by the roadside, 2005-05-26, Algyő, Hungary. By ‪Nl74‪ , via Wikimedia Commons

Buttercup family

All 200 Delphinium species are poisonous owing to the presence of alkaloids of which the most commonly occuring is delphinin

An annual species found on waste ground, rubbish tips and in cultivated fields. As an arable weed it usually occurs on dry soils in chalky or sandy areas.

Mousetail

Mousetail is
Myosurus minimus
fmousetailcolflo1

Buttercup family

Visited by small flies for the nectar secreted in the petals, but usually self-pollinated.

An annual of seasonally flooded, nutrient-rich soils in areas disturbed by machinery or animals, such as hollows on ploughed land, rutted tracks and gateways in pastures. Its seeds appear to be long-lived.

Damp arable sandy fields or bare grass fields and by sea-walls in the lowlands of England and Wales

Pheasant's-eye

Pheasant's-eye is
Adonis annua , Adonis autumnalis
fpheasantscfloeye1

Buttercup family

Pollinated by bees.

An arable weed of dry soils on chalk and limestone, also recorded from tracks, chalk pits and other disturbed habitats. Seed production is low but there is a long-lived soil seed bank. Most populations are small and restricted to field edges.

In chalky cornfields in Southern England.

Purple Clematis

Purple Clematis is
Clematis viticella
purplecfloclematiswikimediacommons
Clematis viticella. By I, Epibase, via Wikimedia Commons.

Buttercup family

See International Clematis Society and Clematis on the Web for further details

A deciduous climber or scrambling perennial, available to gardeners in a wide range of variously coloured cultivars. It is found as a persistent escape in hedgerows and on wasteland, and as a relic of cultivation. Reproduction by seed has not been reported.

Grows in light thickets, in forest edges or in hedges.

Pyrenean Columbine, Granny's Bonnet

Pyrenean Columbine, Granny's Bonnet is Aquilegia pyrenaica
pyreneancflocolumbinewikimediacommons
Aquilegia pyrenaica. By Juan José Sánchez from Spain, via Wikimedia Commons.

Buttercup family

This small alpine herb is naturalised only on rock-ledges at the head of Caenlochan Glen, Angus, at an altitude of c. 900 m. It is a very rare casual elsewhere.

This species prefer pastures and rocky places.

Suitable for Rock Garden.

Scilly Buttercup (Rough-fruited Buttercup)

Scilly Buttercup (Rough-fruited Buttercup) is Ranunculus muricatus
scillycflobuttercupwikimediacommons1
Ranunculus muricatus flower3 DC. By Harry Rose from South West Rocks, Australia, via Wikimedia Commons

Buttercup family

The plant also has a strongly acrid juice that can cause blistering to the skin.

An erect annual found naturalised as a weed of cultivated ground in S.W. England, particularly in bulb-fields and gardens in the Isles of Scilly, and as a bird-seed, grain and wool alien elsewhere.

Agricultural and roadside weed. It grows in wet habitats, such as irrigation ditches.

Stinking Hellebore (Bear's-foot)
 

Stinking Hellebore (Bear's-foot) is Helleborus foetidus
fstinkingcolflohellebore1

Buttercup family

Scented Scented Leaves

Trimethylamine is present in the flowers, which gives off an unpleasant smell to attract midges and bluebottles for their pollination. Visited by early bees and other insects. Seeds said to be dispersed by ants.

Compounds of sulphur are present and the whole plant emits a most unpleasant smell, especially when handled, hence its country name of Stinking Hellebore.

A short-lived perennial herb of shallow calcareous soils. It is a poor competitor, and intolerant of deep shade, so is usually found in small colonies in woodland glades or open scrub, on scree slopes, rock ledges, hedge banks, and as an introduction in churchyards. Adult plants near senescence (4-5 years old) are typically found with a cohort of seedlings.

Woods and scrub on chalk and limestone in Southern England.

Traveller's Joy
Old Man's Beard

Traveller's Joy
Old Man's Beard is Clematis vitalba
ptravellersflojoy1

Buttercup family

Visited by pollen-collecting bees and pollen-eating flies, especially Syrphids.

A climbing perennial with liana-like woody stems, often covering large areas on hedge banks, hedges and walls, trees and scrub, sand dunes, disused quarry faces and ruins. It is a classic railway plant. On base-rich soils, or utilising lime mortar, the plant can form virtual monocultures.

In hedgerows, thickets and wood-margins chiefly on calcareous rocks or soils.

The climbing Clematises most commonly grown in British gardens, with large violet to purple flowers, are hybrids of the Chinese Clematis lanuginosa with the Southern European Clematis viticella (Clematis x jackmanii Th. Moore), or with the Chinese Clematis patens (Clematis x lawsoniata Moore & Jackman). The viticella hybrids are later-flowering than the patens hybrids, and have usually only 4 sepals instead of 6-8. Clmatis montana DC, and Asiatic species, is also much grown for its profusion of smallish white or pink flowers.

When the plant has finished flowering, the developing seeds (known as achenes – an achene is a one seeded fruit) retain part of the flower – the style.  This has long, silky hairs, which form the grey tufted balls that are so conspicuous in some woodlands and hedgerows in autumn and winter.  These are, indeed, the ‘old man’s beard’. These silky structures are important in the dispersal of the seeds.

Babington's Poppy

Babington's Poppy is
Papaver lecoqii (Papaver dubium subsp. lecoqii)
babbingtonscflospoppywikimediacommons
klaproos; eigen foto. by Rob Hooft at Dutch Wikipedia, via Wikimedia Commons

Poppy family

This annual is found in arable fields and in other disturbed open ground such as on roadsides, railway tracks and waste land, in gardens and along hedges. It is most frequent on heavy calcareous soils, and can be found in both spring- and autumn-sown crops. The seed can be very long-lived.

Grown for their cup-shaped flowers. Suitable for coastal conditions.

iSpot - A friendly and free community helping to identify wildlife and share nature in UK and Ireland run by The Open University.

Pale Poppy , Long Prickly-headed Poppy, Prickly Poppy

Pale Poppy , Long Prickly-headed Poppy, Prickly Poppy is
Papaver argemone
fpaleflotpoppy1

Poppy family

Probably often selfed before flowers open.

An annual of arable crops, usually found on field edges and in unsprayed corners, often in small numbers. It is most frequent on light sandy, gravelly and chalky soils. Rarely, it occurs on waste ground.
Poisonous.

The UK's only poppy with sparsely bristled, long narrow seed-pods.

Use in Garden flower border or cornfield meadow

Climbing Corydalis , White Climbing Fumitory

Climbing Corydalis , White Climbing Fumitory is
Corydalis claviculata (Ceratocapnos claviculata)
fclimbingcolflocorydalis1

Fumitory family

Pollinated by bees, perhaps more often selfed.

A climbing or scrambling annual of freely-draining acidic, mineral or peaty soils. It occurs in deciduous and coniferous woodland, especially in clearings and in recently felled areas, under Pteridium and in scrub, and occasionally over rock outcrops. In Ireland, it occurs on shaded boulder slopes.

Woods and shady rocks on acid soils or on shingle over most of Great Britain from Caithness southwards. It will grow on extremely acid soil and in shady conditions so it can be found in the dark under conifers.

Few-flowered Fumitory (Earthsmoke)

Few-flowered Fumitory (Earthsmoke) is
Fumaria vaillantii
fewcflofloweredfumitorywikimediacommons
Fumaria vaillantii ss Fischer et al. EfÖLS 2008 ISBN 978-3-85474
-187-9. By Stefan.lefnaer, via Wikimedia Commons

Fumitory family

This scrambling annual is almost exclusively found in arable fields on chalky soils, and is usually associated with other uncommon arable species. Like the other small-flowered Fumaria species, this is most frequently found in spring-sown crops.

Martin's Ramping-Fumitory (Few-flower fumitory)

Martin's Ramping-Fumitory (Few-flower fumitory) is
Fumaria martinii (Fumaria reuteri)
fmartinscolflorampingfumitory

Fumitory family

This is a scrambling annual of freely-draining acidic soils, which has most recently been recorded in spring- and summer-sown crops on allotments, in gardens and in potato fields; also on the eroded soil of hedge banks.

Fumaria martinii is a plant specially protected under the Wildlife and Country-side Act 1981. Reasons for Notification:

Lake Allotments is of national importance to nature conservation as it contains the last known wild population of Martin’s ramping-fumitory Fumaria martinii in Britain. The world distribution of Martin’s ramping-fumitory is confined to Europe where, in addition to the Lake Allotments site, it is confined to scattered localities in France, Spain and Portugal.

Martin’s ramping-fumitory is an annual species: that is, it grows from seed and dies each year. It depends on the annual cultivation of the ground by the allotment holders to provide the conditions necessary for the seed to germinate. It seems to possess an unusual seed dormancy which makes it difficult to grow by sowing seed in other localities. It is thought that the soil in the Lake Allotments contains a large seed bank of Martin’s ramping-fumitory which ensures its continued survival in this locality.

Wild Flower Family Page

(the families within "The Pocket Guide to Wild Flowers" by David McClintock & R.S.R. Fitter, Published in 1956 are not in Common Name alphabetical order and neither are the common names of the plants detailed within each family. These families within that book will have their details described as shown in the next column starting from page 1 in February 2017 until all the families have been completed on page 307.

This may take a few months of my time before I get to the Adder's Tongue Family on page 307.

The information in the above book is back-referenced to the respective page in "Flora of the British Isles" by A.R. Clapham of University of Sheffield,
