|notes:||Growing with G. verum and G. Mollugo, these plants certainly appear to be the result of crossing between those species. The several patches produce stems varying in character and tint of flowers; some favoring one parent and some the other. At the end of September gatherings shewed only abortive ovaries. I could not find a single fruit. The specimens agree well with examples gathered abroad; but I have some times doubted if the continental plant be really a hybrid, for it is of a general distribution in Southern Europe, and often grows where neither of the supposed parents can be seen. I have not, however, had an opportunity of searching for fruits in late summer. - James W. White.|
Yes; G. Mollugo x ferum, decidedly on the verum side. I have gathered a simular form in W. Sussex. - E. S. M.
