Image:Gnaphalium undulatum herbarium specimen from Jersey, Saint Helier, VC113 Channel Islands in 1900 by Mr Stanley Guiton.
notes:Although probably of recent introduction, this species is thoroughly well established. It is abundant on the south and west sides of the island, and very variable in size, growing from two or three inches to as many feet in height. I have seen hillsides white with this plant, and old quarries full of it; dwarfed by the roadside, or branched and luxuriant in cultivated fields.

Inferred details are marked.
