The large-flowered cerastium (C. alpinum) was here every where in abundance, and the prickly Lycopodium.
This is the prettiest cerastium, though not so "mousy" as some, and grows in dry as well as moist situations.
Of the less conspicuous genera, the chick-weeds (cerastium and Stellaria) are the most familiar.
In fig. 16 the biparous cyme is represented in the flowering branch of cerastium.
