Adoxa moschatellina. Town-hall clock.

Life-form & Growth Form:  

Non-bulbous geophyte. Herbaceous perennial with little/no vegetative spread. 

Flowering period: 

April & May.


A plant of shaded riparian banks, deciduous woodlands, hedge banks and occasionally also shaded base-rich montane sites.


The main threat is the very small size of the current population, which makes it vulnerable to local extinction through habitat disturbance events (competition from other species, trampling). A change to habitat management practices could threaten the population.
