Dagnam Park Plant list. Plants are usually recorded on a one kilometre square basis. Broadly speaking the park is centred on four such squares, as below


The lists below are all of the plants recorded by reputable botanists since 2000 within the boundaries of Dagnam Park and Duck Wood. There are many plants that were there in the past, as well as those that have not yet been discovered so the list will always be incomplete. We love to add records so if you make a discovery please let us know where it is, ideally with a photograph.

Over the years many plants have been introduced into the park's flora, Mrs Marriot of the Priory introduced numerous plants and running along from the old Priory gardens into Hatters Wood you will find Snowdrops, Snowflakes, Squills and Periwinkles the latter of which have proved to be the most successful introduction. These species are now well established. The Neaves also introduced a number of trees and shrubs. In more recent decades local people have dumped garden "refuse around the margins of the park. Some of these "discarded" plants have become established, some only on a temporary basis. There have also been some deliberate aquatic introductions by freelance botanist/anglers. In the main unless these plants have become established long term they are ignored for the purposes of this list of plants.

The white table and the yellow table contain similar lists. The white table with English names first and in English alphabetical order and the yellow list listed alphabetically by botanical (Latin) names. As pictures from the park become available they will be linked to the names
