yellow flower
« on: July 30, 2018, 01:05:22 PM »
Hello everyone,
last year, when I went to Iceland, I saw plenty of beautiful flowers and I found one I do not know its name.

Can someone help me please ??

Thank you

Welcome Agathe :)
This beautiful plant is yellow mountain saxifrage, Saxifraga aizoides
It tends to grow in wetter areas and is also widespread in northern Scandinavia.

Thank you very much for the answer. So could we find it in mountainous areas such as the Alps ?

Yes, it is quite common above 1500m along the small stream. Also present in the Pyrenees (http://siflore.fcbn.fr/?cd_ref=120965&r=metro). You can have some small presentation in French of this species here :
