Hi Ori !
Beautiful plant.
Splendid colors, perfect contrast.
The description offered is very good.
Have a pleasant day,

Hi Ori,

Interesting-looking structure and shows the hooked hairs nicely. I find Galiums easy to ID to genus but rather challenging to ID to species, in many instances.

Looking at my book on plants of the Chicago region, we have 17 species of Galium here, many differentiated by arcane botanical terms, and most of them look very similar.

The terminology for describing those hairs is overwhelming. Are those hairs considered strigose? Strigulose? Strongly retrorsely scabrous? Harshly scabrous? Scaberulous? I get a headache sometimes when trying to key out plants like these. :-)


Hola Ori

Estupenda imagen y extraña a la vez, siendo la primera vez que la veo.

Es muy original para mi aunque sea una planta vulgar.

Muy buena toma con fondo negro que la resalta.

Un saludo Antonio

Bonjour Ori,
Très belle macro valorisant bien le sujet.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
