Galium palustre   Marsh Bedstraw CCC DD N

Galium palustre

This is a very thin and straggly plant found as you would expect at the edges of ponds or in damp and boggy areas. It can have up to six leaves per whorl but usually has four and the flowers are quite small and insignificant.

G. palustre can easily be missed but is actually very common throughout the British Isles and Ireland.
