Impressive Flora on the White Cliff's of Dover

Impressive Flora on the White Cliff's of Dover

Many rare flowers grow in the chalk grassland, including Meadow Clary and the Early Spider Orchid. The cliffs are also home to 90 per cent of the UK’s population of Oxtongue broomrape; an unusual plant that lives on the roots of a host plant.

On this spot I saw many species like the bright pink flowering Sainfoin (Onobrychis viciifolia), Greater Knapweed (Centaurea scabiosa) , Mouse-ear Hawkweed (Hieracium pilosella), Sea carrot (Daucus carota ssp. gummifer), Wild cabbage (Brassica oleracea), Woundwort (Anthyllis vulneraria),Salad burnet (Sanguisorba minor ), Alexanders (Smyrnium olusatrum), Viper's Bugloss or Blueweed (Echium vulgare) and many more
