Wild Flowers Of The National Park

  • North York Moors National Park

The North York Moors National Park encompasses an exciting variety of habitats, offering a diverse range of flowering plants. In the acid soil of bogs, species such as Marsh Lousewort, Common Butterwort, Round-leaved Sundew, Bogbean and unusual sedges are waiting to be discovered, while the chalk and limestone grasslands contain Fairy Flax, Yellow Rattle, Black Medick, Kidney Vetch and a myriad other plants. We will also be looking for members of the fascinating orchid family such as Fly, Early Purple, Heath-spotted, Green-winged and Common Twayblade. 

A variety of ferns can be seen in the woodlands, along with ancient woodland indicators such as Sanicle, Golden Saxifrage and Pendulous Sedge, while Bluebells, Dogs Mercury and masses of Ramsons are also still in flower. Examples of plants at coastal sites include Scurvygrass, Alexanders and Sea and Buckshorn Plantains.

You will enjoy easy and relaxing rambles in the beautiful landscapes of the National Park, while your expert guide helps you find and identify many different flowering plants, with hopefully a few rarities included!
