Note on West Surrey Plants
Phytologist, n.s. I (July 1856), 392. Appeared in the section entitled “Botanical Notes, Notices, and Queries.” Signed “J.S.M.” Not republished. For the identification in Mill’s bibliography, see “Observations on Isatis Tinctoria and Other Plants” above.
if you print my Plantae Rariores of North-western Surrey,1 it may be as well to add Cirsium anglicum (Carduus pratensis), which has two good habitats in the district; and also (though belonging to its extreme point) that decidedly western plant Scilla autumnalis, which I have seen growing on Moulsey Hurst, where it grew in Ray’s time.2
