Dutch rare plant discovery

Northern bedstraw

Translated from Staatsbosbeheer in the Netherlands:

Saturday, August 25, 2012

During survey work foresters of the Forestry Department in National Park De Biesbosch have discovered the very rare Northern bedstraw (Galium boreale). In total there are about 50 to 100 plants. Northern bedstraw since 1997 has been no longer observed in the Netherlands. So far as we know the location in the Hengstpolder is the plant’s only habitat in our country.
