PLANTS OF BROOK MEADOW
Here is a list of wild plants that have been identified on the Brook Meadow site. Note, the Brook Meadow site also includes copses and waterways, as well as the main grassland. Many plants are not found on the meadow every year, so this list will change slightly from one year to the next.
I have classified the plants into conventional groups as herbs (with no woody stem), trees and shrubs (with woody stem), grasses, sedges, rushes, horsetails, ferns, mosses and liverworts. The names of the plants are as in Francis Rose’s books: “The Wild Flower Key” and “Grasses, Sedges, Rushes and Ferns”
Meadow indicators that are regularly seen on the meadow each year: Smooth Brome – Festulolium Hybrids – Distant Sedge – Hoary Ragwort – Pepper-saxifrage – Stone Parsley – Strawberry Clover.
These meadow indicators have not seen for some years: Meadow Barley – Marsh Arrowgrass –
