Flora

One of Britain’s rarest wildflowers can be found in Gower – the yellow whitlowgrass. It grows on the limestone cliffs of the south coast and this is the only location in the UK where the plant has naturally colonised since the last ice age. This pretty perennial plant is a member of the cabbage family but looks very different to cabbage!

Other rare plants found in Gower include hoary rock rose, Isle of Man cabbage (another member of the cabbage family), samphire and golden samphire, spring squill, small restharrow (part of the onion family) and rock whitebeam, a small shrub.
