Other Important Teesdale Plants

The Teesdale Assemblage has a core of just over 20 rare plant species. However Teesdale Special Flora Trust is interested in a larger list of roughly 100 species which are of conservation interest.

As well as our famous Spring Gentian, other special plants of Teesdale include Yellow Saxifrage, Alpine Rush, Bird’s-eye Primrose, Alpine Cinquefoil, Dwarf Milkwort, Teesdale Violet, Rare Spring-sedge, Hoary Whitlowgrass and many others. 

Teesdale Special Flora Trust's recent surveys have recorded significant evidence of decline in many of these plants.
