Cae’r Felin is important for its flower-rich
lowland neutral and acid grassland. Species rich neutral grassland
is now very rare. Amongst the plants that have been recorded here
over the years are burnet saxifrage, globeflower and greater
butterfly orchid. Needle whin, wood bitter vetch, quaking grass and
lady’s bedstraw, all uncommon and noteworthy plants of this
habitat, have been recorded here in the more distant past.
