SMALL HARE’S-EAR Bupleurum baldense (Height to 2cm) is a tiny, atypical umbellifer, the tiny flower umbels shrouded by pointed green bracts (Jun-Jul); the leaves are narrow and strap-like. The plant grows dangerously near the cliff edge at Beachy Head in Sussex, with additional outposts in S Devon and the Channel Islands. However, it is hard to believe that such a small and insignificant plant has not been overlooked elsewhere.
