Least Willow (Salix herbacea)
Mike Raine (May)
This very small creeping plant is unlike any other member of the Willow
family. It is a true acrtic-alpine plant of higher altitudes. It can only
thrive where there is little competition so it is usually found on, wind or
frost, scoured exposed surfaces. This example can be seen very close to the
summit of Y Garn.
