Axiophytes are ” ‘worthy plants’ – the species that arouse interest and praise from botanists when they are seen. They are indicators of habitat that is considered important for conservation”.  I have today completed a list for VC 104 as all vice-county recorders have been asked to do for their patch.  It is a somewhat subjective exercise with candidates having to be good habitat indicators as well as being not too rare and not too common.

Anyone interested is welcome to a copy.
