I met this interesting and, as it turns out, medicinal plant species quite by accident. It turns out that it grows near the mushroom, which I have already described earlier.

This mushroom is the scaly brandy, a tasty arboreal mushroom. I wonder if it's a coincidence, because I haven't met a plant called Dąbrówka hairy anywhere else in the park.
