|Institution:||South London Botanical Institute (SLBI)|
|notes:||Hairy form. This plant was so hairy in its upper parts that I took it, at first, for M ericetorum. The hirsuteness, however, in my plant is much softer, and does not cover the stem and branches to the same extent as in M ericetorum, Oliver. The Rev WR Linton has come across the same hairy form as the Dunbeath plant, in Derbyshire. - E F Linton|
