By the 1000... Hieracium spp.

Hieracium is a huge genus in Norway with many 1000 mostly apomictic species.
Here is one common representative of Hieracium alpinum (coll.)
This one grows on dry places often with lichens.

The landscape could pass for northern Newfoundland!  Even moreso, Greenland!  I see you have lots of Arctous alpina in that area...must be fantastic when they are in their brilliant red fall colour.

We have a couple of native Hieracium but they are larger, more woodland types.  The vast majority of ours are weedy species from your parts of the world!

Yes, Arctous alpina (syn. Arctostaphylos a.) is very common here but you have to hit the right weeks to experience the best colors.

You are welcome to the Hieraciums! We have got our share of some of your plants!

You have to wait a long while, Margaret, I haven't photos of all of them! But I could use the same plant from different angles, you probably wouldn't know it, I don't. They are so similar.

Okay..... you're right, I may not be any the wiser... I'd enjoy the coffee break anyhow! No better way to enjoy a browse around the forum ;D

Well Maggie, if I ever take pictures of all Norwegian  Hieraciums I'll give you a warning so you can brew enough coffee and bake biscuits. Don't be impatient, I have no immediate plans. (I would rather take pictures of Townsendia.)

I'd find it hard to make a case that the  Hieraciums are cuter than the Townsendias pictured lately (or linked ) in the Forum, Trond .... that's for sure.... but your photos were appreciated just the same!

Thanks! But I also implied that it had been more exciting for me to find Townsendia (have never seen it in the wild) - that had meant that I was abroad! Hieraciums have I seen by 10000!
