The Leontopodium nivale, also known as the edelweiss, is a beautiful white flower that blooms in the summer. This flower is native to Europe and Asia, and can be found in mountainous regions. The Leontopodium nivale typically grows at elevations between 8,000 and 10,000 feet.

This flower has been used medicinally for centuries. In folk medicine, it was used to treat a variety of conditions including liver problems, respiratory infections, and skin diseases. Today, the Leontopodium nivale is mostly known for its symbolical meaning. It is seen as a symbol of purity, courage, and strength.
