ID notes

Seems to have missed out most of my notes. I'll try again.

Nope - it's lost them.

Leaves divided less than halfway to base.
Petioles and lower stem with patent hairs.
Epicalyx segments shorter than sepals.
Pedicels and hypanthia hairy.
7 leaf-lobes.
Reddish base to stem.
Upper leaf surface only slightly hairy.

Variable

Hairiness varies in A. vestita and the leaves may be more strongly hairy later in summer. It looks OK to me.

Many thanks

I haven't seen this plant before so that's a useful comment. Must remember to walk down that way later in the season.
