Galium saxatile
(Map updated: March 2008)

This small bedstraw is very common in acid situations on heaths and can be found in both lowland and upland situations. Each tiny leaf has a marginal row of forward-projecting teeth. (Contrast the similar-looking Galium sterneri).

All names: Galium saxatile L.; Galium harcynicum Weigel
