Table of Contents:
1 The Psoranthea bituminosa of Linnæus. It is found on declivities near the sea-coast, in the south of Europe.
2 "Pointed trefoil." Pliny has probably committed an error here, as Dioscorides makes oxyphyllum, minyanthes, and asphaltium to be different names of the same variety. Sprengel, however, identifies this pointed trefoil with the Trifolium Italicum of Linnæus.
3 The Anethum fæniculum of Linnæus. See B. viii. c. 41, B. xx. c. 95, and B. xxx. c. 9.
4 See B. xx. c. 96.
5 The "mouse-killer." Probably the Aconitum napellus of Linnæus. See B. xxvii. c. 2.
6 See B. xvi. c. 62.
8 The Daphne Cnidium and the Daphne Cneorum of Linnæus. See B. xxiii. c. 35, and B. xv. c. 7.
9 In reality, they blossom in April and May, and mostly a second time in autumn as well, the Daphne Cneorum in particular.
10 See B. xx. c. 69.
