Sorbus porrigentiformis

Judge's comment: S. porrigentiformis is a British endemic 5 m high, this looks like S. poteriifolia
Entry by John Good

Potentilla nitida
Full sun in a sharply drained, preferably calcareous soil are what this classic prostrate alpine shrub requires. It is very long-lived, slowly spreading into an appreciable mat that may (but not always) produce plenty of flowers, although it never quite matches those splendid specimens that grace the limestone screes and rock walls of the Dolomites.

Judge's comment: Not considered to be a shrubNAS (Not According to Schedule)
