Scrophularia peregrina   Nettle-leaved Figwort

Scrophularia peregrina whole

We only found one site for this plant on Gozo although it is probably quite widespread. It was growing on a narrow patch of soil next to a wall - a habitat it favours according to the texts. The diagnostic feature of this plant is the nettle like leaves which have sharply toothed serrations not rounded lobes.
