Moss Campion (Silene acaulis)

Moss Campion (Silene acaulis) - 9 July 2010 near Rifugio Serristori in the Stelvio National Park

This ubiquitous mat-forming plant decorates short turf, damp rocks and screes across all of the European Alpine regions, up to heights of around 3700 metres.

It’s even to be found here in the UK, but not usually in such lavish quantities.

This particular specimen was snapped on 9 July 2010 near Rifugio Serristori in the Stelvio National Park.
