Cubbin's Green (Wirral Way): Flowers

Cubbin's Green and the area of the Wirral Way adjacent to it has several different types of land: sea-facing cliff; grassland on cliff top; shrubs; woods; hedgerows.

Those marked C are found on the exposed cliff and cliff top. List organised by date of appearance. Many are garden escapes. See also trees and shrubs.

I am not a botanist - so rely on texts such as The Wild Flower Key by Francis Rose (rev Clare O'Reilly 2006); Wild Flowers of Britain by Roger Phillips 1994 and the excellent web-site Wild flower finder (which is based in NW England).

I have seen reports that the Bee Orchid has been known to appear on the Dee cliffs - but I have not seen any sign of it in the area I cover.
