Abstract

The discovery of the medicinal Vervain in Tasmania,
though not unexpected, is of double interest,
inasmuch as this plant adds a natural order to the flora of the
Island. This Verbena is rather widely, although not copiously,
distributed through South-Eastern Australia, but not yet
found in New Zealand, where however it may have been
overlooked, as it has been for so long a time in Tasmania
