a field guide to the planet - by Damon Ramsey
The flowers of the Arctic Tundra provide colour to a barren landscape...
Rhodiola rosea, 'Roseroot'.
Chamerion (Chamaenerion) latifolium, 'Fireweed'.
Cerastium alpinum, ‘Alpine Mouseweed’
Silene acaulis, 'Moss Campion'.
Honckenya peploides, 'Sea Purslane'
Vaccinium vitis-idaea, ‘Lingonberry’.
Euphrasia frigida, 'Eye-bright'
