Galium pilosum Aiton
Common Name: HAIRY BEDSTRAW
Coefficient of Conservatism: 6
Coefficient of Wetness: 5
Wetness Index: UPL
Physiognomy: Nt P-Forb

Dry sandy savanna with oak or jack pine, thriving in clearings; fields, grasslands.

The undersides of the leaves are minutely gland-dotted, a helpful character for distinguishing this species from G. circaezans when an inflorescence is lacking (or too immature to be sure of the distinct and thickish pedicels in G. pilosum).
