Alchemilla filicaulis subsp. vestita
The habitats of this perennial apomict include rough pasture, grassy hill-slopes, banks and mountain flushes, woodland borders and rides, and roadside verges; it is also locally found on superficial clay-with-flints on chalk downs. 0?915 m (Ben Lui, Mid Perth).
There is no significant change in the distribution of this subspecies over most of Britain and Ireland, but in lowland areas some sites have been lost, probably since 1930.
