Botanical study of the Mediterranean spurge Euphorbia characias, here referred to as the Venetian euphorbia Euphobia veneta. The plant is native to Europe. The plate shows flowers and leaves, with a detail of the plant’s reproductive organs.
Plate 6 from Edwards’s botanical register…edited by John Lindley, new series v.1, (London, James Ridgway and Sons, 1838). The plate is inscribed ‘6’ above; and below ‘Miss Drake del. Pub. by J. Ridgway 169 Piccadilly Feby.1 1838. S Watts. sc.’
In the associated text, the author states that this is: ‘A fine half-shrubby ever-green plant, inhabiting not only the vicinity of Venice, but the country about Nice and Genoa, Dalmatia, Friuli, and elsewhere in the same part of Europe…The specimens from which the drawing was made, were communicated by the Hon. W.F. Strangways, from his garden at Abbotsbury.’"
