Unlike the grasslands on the more acidic upland soils, some hay meadow habitats that are mildly acidic and close, in terms of trophic status, to neutral grasslands can be extremely species-rich and support a good range of scarce and rare plant species. These might include species such as small white orchid, (Pseudorchis albida), wood bitter vetch (Vicia orobus) and Dyer’s greenweed (Genista tinctoria).
