Hairy Greenweed - Genista Pilosa. Height to 1m but often prostrate. Low growing shrub. It recalls Petty Whin but is spineless, and Dyer's Greenweed but its leaves are silvery-downy below. The flowers are yellow, in terminal heads (May-June). It grows on maritime heaths and sea cliffs. It is also found, locally, on the North Cornish coast and in West Wales.
