Cross leaved heath

Cross leaved heath

Observation - Cross leaved heath - UK and Ireland. Description: I am pretty sure that this is cross-leaved heath and not bell heather. The leaves are hairy and in whorls of four. Also the flowers are slightly paler than those found in bell heather. It was in amongst a clump of ling heather at valley level.
