Plant Life of Cumbria

Daffodils and snowdrops grow wild in Cumbria. Primroses, bluebells, and foxglove add their colours. Saxifrages are found in wet places. Ferns are everywhere. Alongside the lakes and rivers summer flowers bloom: yellow flag, valerian, and white flowered meadowsweet. Lichens and mosses grow in the high areas of the mountains. Moorland is scattered with heather. Thousands of plants are native to the varied habitats of Cumbria.
