Webb. & Berth., Aquilegia vulgaris L., Berberis vulgaris L., Brassica oleracea L., Chelidonium majus L., Chenopodium album L., Iris germanica L., Lactuca serriola Torner, Prunus domestica L., Trifolium mon-tanum L., and Vitis vinifera L. These include two trees, one scrub, one liana, and eight herbs.
