Photographer's Note

Saxifraga Scardica.
The species is indigenous to the mountains of C. & S. Balkan peninsula.
The plant is leafy with basic roses, calcified with sharp leaves. The flowey buds have a height of 4-12 cm and a bunch of 4-12 white or rosy flowers.
This species is common and widely spread to rocky areas from 400m on the slopes of the North side of mount Olympus up to highest peak, especially rich in the sub-alpine zone.
There is a significant variation of species that grows in low height and forms slack and leafy layers but plants exposed to alpine conditions, form thick, tough pillows with much little leaves.

The Vertical slope of Stefani peak 2909m. (Τhrone of Zeus) in the role of an imposing background.
