europaeum

Differences are hairy tufts at the base of the stamens. So, with a new herbarium study we confirmed recently our " europaeum " result. Lycium intricatum (s...

Well Wolf, your comment at the end of your contribution of Dec 05, 2005 10:27 pm, is a very important one. You noticed the destruction and you may say it, you have to say it. As foreigners, we have no right to do so, or at least we should not critisise and demonstrate "to be a know-it-all". I think ...

Wolf: there is much fear of that it is Ajuga pseudoiva (the yellow "(d)iva")) :wink: because iva grows procumbent but more ascending, at least more than pseudoiva, which grows almost exclusively procumbent (as far as I know).
