Halenia corniculata - ShikaShan, Zhongdian, Yunnan, 3400m  (blue)http://trillium.no/halenia1.jpg

Have to buy some seed from Bjørnar next fall I think!

Have you ever looked for seed of H deflexa, Cohan?

Trond Rogaland, Norway - with cool, often rainy summers  (29C max) and mild, often rainy winters (180 cm/year)!

Who is Bjørnar? Is the trillium.no his site? I didn't realise there were seed sales... (btw, that ø is not on my list of special alt characters that I could find, so I had to copy and paste :(I just backtracked to his seedlist- though I guess the new one for the year is not up yet- interesting! Even more interesting than I realised at first- nice to see a list with an emphasis on woodlanders :) Epiphytic Polygonatum!!

I have collected seed of H deflexa in the past (might still have some old seed, don't know if it remains viable, very fine seed) not too hard to find here, the only trick is being sure whether it is H deflexa or Gentianella amarella since the dried plants are not terribly different..

For the sharp eyed, leaves of Linnaea, Mitella nuda and a Vaccinium sp can be seen also

And a strawberry?  ;D

Halenia deflexa is a new one for me - thanks for the introduction to it, Cohan.  I'll have to keep an eye out for it.

I was trying to decide what that big leaf to the left was..lol-- I was thinking Rosaceae- but wasn't sure I had enough to go on (or missed the vital cues?) likely players in this area are Rubus (idaeus or pedata) or Fragaria as Lori mentions (seems big for that, but they can have large leaves at times, plus it could be an issue of camera angle).. the coarseness of the toothing might suggest Fragaria, but then there is the thorny stem visible just past the leaf...lol could even be a Ribes, I suppose...
