The Edelweiss, a protected plant, blooms in the alpine regions of Switzerland between July and September. Did you know that the Edelweiss is not really a flower as such, but a set of 500 to 1000 tiny florets grouped in several heads (2 to 10 of each) surrounded by 5 to 15 white velvety leaves; that it is fertilisedby flies; that it originally came from the Himalayaas and was practically unknown in Switzerland until the late 19th century?
