For many years I have seen pic of Parnassia in my wild flowers book.

I was so thrilled to find my first one besides the road on the West coast of Skye. Scotland.
It was growing in a bog.
I think the flowers are just exquisite.
This one was actually found on Iceland…again in a rush time!
I have it labelled as Parnassia palustris.

Thanks, Sheila ji, for such a unique flower.

Very interesting morphology. Looks like a Parnassia. A confused genus!!

Very clearly showing the imbricate aestivation.

Wonderful flower, Sheila ji … the entire plant with the buds and the flowers look wonderful, like a beautiful bouquet !!
Many thanks for sharing.
