Filago pyramidata   Broad-leaved Cudweed

Filago pyramidata whole Crete Filago pyramidata close Crete

On a patch of waste land close to the Airport at Chania there was a significant outcrop of basic soils where the flora was quite different from the usual countryside where we stayed. F. pyramidata is now quite rare in the British Isles but was a roadside weed amongst the gravel and stones of our temporary car park.
