The wall flora and vegetation of Qal'at Nimrud (Qal'at es Subeibe), a medieval ruin on the western spurs of Mt. Hermon, were analyzed. Although the flora is dominated by plants characteristic of rocks, batha and forest, it contains a relatively high proportion of ruderals and weeds; accordingly, therophytes are most abundant, followed by hemicryptophytes and phanerophytes. The vegetation consists of two associations, the more mesic Parietaria Judaica subassociation of HYOSCYAMETUM AUREI, grading into the more xeric DIANTHETUM PENDULI with Parietaria lusitanica, which is described here for the first time. Pistacia palaestina and Phagnalon rupestre are accompanying species with high percentage presence.
