The world of mountain plants
Mountain flora holidays and weekends in North Wales
Whether you are an experienced botanist or simply someone who notices
the wonderful variety of colour and form in wild flowers, or the subtle
textures and patterns in ferns, mosses and lichens, Snowdonia contains
riches galore. On the Wild Wales World
of mountain plants botanical holidays our aim is to share these
riches with you; your guide will know the hills and where to seek out
the botanical jewels.
From wooded valley to mountain top
Our explorations will take us from pasture and woodland in the valley
bottoms, up through grassland and bog, on to the high crags and finally
to the mountain tops each habitat with its own distinctive plants.
The lower levels revealing forest and hedgerow plants like the foxglove,
wood anemone, sorrel and bluebell; on the lower hills we can revel in
the glories of flowering gorse and heather; or wonder at the subtle mechanisms
of species in the wetland, and then, as we get higher, search for lingering
remnants of an arctic alpine flora.
On the exposed plateaux of the summits only the hardiest of plants survive
and here we can marvel at their exquisite miniature forms and enjoy the
bigger picture with wonderful views across the landscape, westwards over
the Irish Sea and southwards along the knobbly spine of the Dragon's Back
that is Wales.
