A few Primulas were among the first plants to appear as the snow melted.  Amazing how so many flowers emerged unscathed (although trumpet gentians were often a bit flat!)

Primula auricula grows in masses on the W facing crags of the Mannlichen.  Primula farinosa is found in enormous quantities in damp flushes along the ridge and especially in the E facing hollows below the ridge.

Androsace helvetica is rare but there is a small colony of plants on the rocks just under the Mannlichen summit.  It flowers early and growing in places where snow cover will be thin it is usually over by mid-June.
