Parietaria judaica
(Map updated: March 2008)

Old mortared walls, such as those of many historic monuments, are the normal habitat of this species in Northern Ireland. Like some other species which are restricted to this man-made habitat, it is probably not truly native in Northern Ireland.

All names: Parietaria judaica L.; Parietaria diffusa Mert. & Koch.; Parietaria ramiflora auct.
