Edelweiss Seeds

Edelweiss Latin: Leontopodium alpinum, is a well-known mountain flower, belonging to the sunflower family. The common name comes from German edel, meaning "noble" and Weiss "white", thus signifying "noble whiteness" Leaves and flowers are covered with white hairs and appear woolly (tomentose).

Flowering stalks of Edelweiss can grow to a size of 3–20 cm (in cultivation, up to 40 cm). Each bloom consists of five to six small yellow flower heads (5 mm) surrounded by bracts in star formation. The flowers are in bloom between July and September. The plant is unequally distributed and prefers rocky limestone places at 2000–2900 m altitude.

It is not toxic, and has been used traditionally in folk medicine as a remedy against abdominal and respiratory diseases.

The dense hair appears to be an adaptation to high altitudes, protecting the plant from cold, aridity and ultraviolet radiation. Edelweiss is a protected plant in many countries
