Origin/Endemic status: Europe

Taxonomy Comments: Galium sherardia differs from most Galium in its involucrate inflorescence and the more tubular, pink to purple flowers, and is usually treated as a monotypic genus, Sherardia, but Soza & Olmstead (2010) show Sherardia to be deeply embedded within a paraphyletic Galium.
