Rigi Local Customs: 1 reviews and 1 photos
The Silver Thistle (Carlina acaulis) is an alpine flower which grows in Central and Southern Europe from valleys up to mountainous regions of up to 2800 metres. Its typical flowering time is in late summer.
At the very beginning of October we spotted quite a few Silver Thistels on our hike at heights between 1600 and 1700 metres.
