Known as Edelweiss flower. Its name Leontopodium Alpinum comes from Greek and means "Alpine Lion's Foot". Its habitat extends from our Pyrenees to the Carpathians.
This flower deceives us because we see it as a single flower, when in fact it is a group of tiny flowers that have evolved and grow together to survive. It lives from 1,500 meters above sea level between ice and snow, and very difficult to find, although I have some friends who have it in the garden of their house, because they live in high mountains. They are lucky.
