Species Description

Tormentil is a native perennial growing 5-15 cm in height and flowers from June to September. Although small and often in low abundance, the perpetual flowering of this species often provides the only regular source of nectar at some marshy grassland sites with low botanical diversity and its ability to survive in rank vegetation is a key attribute.
