Gnaphalium supinum   Dwarf Cudweed C DDD N

Gnaphalium supinum

As you walk towards the Corrie this is one of the first plants to look for. It grows on various grassy slopes on the approach to the Corrie but is only a few centimetres tall so down on hands and knees with hand lens. This one was growing right next door to the Sibbaldia procumbens (Sibbaldia) elsewhere on the site.

G. supinum is common in the highlands of Scotland but does not grow in England, Wales, Ireland or southern Scotland.
