If you're lucky enough to spot a Mountain Avens in the wild, you'll be rewarded with a truly stunning sight. These beautiful flowers are native to mountainous regions, and their blossoms come in a variety of colours including white, pink, and purple.

Mountain Avens are relatively small, averaging around 10cm in height. They have long, slender leaves that are arranged in a rosette pattern. The flowers grow on stalk-like stems and have five petals each.

If you're hoping to see a Mountain Avens in bloom, the best time to look is typically from June to August. However, since they only grow in high altitudes, they can be difficult to spot unless you know where to look.

Mountain Avens are commonly found in the Alps and Pyrenees mountains, as well as in parts of Siberia. They typically grow at altitudes between 2,000 and 3,000 meters.

So, next time you're out on a hike in the mountains, keep your eyes peeled for these gorgeous flowers!
