Phytologist, n.s. II (Sept. 1858), 566. Appeared in the section entitled “Botanical Notes, Notices, and Queries,” which also serves as running title. Signed “J.S.M.” Not republished. For the identification in Mill’s bibliography, see “Observations on Isatis Tinctoria and Other Plants” above.
touching the murality of Linaria purpurea, the only two places where I have seen it undoubtedly wild were cornfields: one near Frimley, in Surrey, in the large cornfield noted by Mr. Watson as a station of that thumping plant Arnoseris pusilla;1 the other was on the Mont des Alouettes, a richly cultivated eminence in La Vendée, along with Lathyrus angulatus, a plant which will probably some day find its way here as an agrarian plant. The exact similarity of the habitat in these two cases satisfied me that L. purpurea has as much right to be considered a British as a French plant.
