I noticed this ornate cluster of Navelwort whilst climbing at Tremadog.
A member of the stonecrop family it can be found growing in abundance on lime-free cliffs and rocky outcrops across the UK.
Sometimes referred to as 'Pennywort', it takes its name from its rounded leaves which have a navel-llike dimple in the centre. The 'Pennywort' alternative name is thought to have come about as a result of the leaves being used by children as toy coins in days gone by.
Historically Navelwort leaves were placed on burns to cool them. The leaves were also used to treat piles, gout and chilblains and the juice was used to treat epilepsy.
