how many plants grow in chalky soil

Asked from the GoYpedia chalk soil plants page



Quite a lot. They are called calcareous plants as they are adapted to growing in soils rich in calcium carbonate with a Ph well over 7. Some of the most well know genera of plants that contain calcareous plants includes Dianthus, Clematis (some), Polygala, Gentiana (some), Buxus and Sorbus (some). There are many more including a few surprising ones such as Erica arborea and Erica vagans.
