Tromsø Arctic-Alpine Botanic Garden –


  1. The Chinese gentian Gentiana hexaphylla. It grows in the S-facing slope of our Gentian collection, together with the neighbouring species G. arethusae.

  1. The silver saxifrages along the ridge and in the new northern valley in the saxifrage collection. We have never seen such a large specimen of the Pyrenean S. longifolia as the one which flowers there right now.

  1. Tall perennials in many parts of the garden, particularly in the collection of old garden plants from North Norway. The giant cowslip (Primula florindae) has a nice smell where it occurs, and in the largest quantities in the Primula collection.

  1. The bugloss species Echium russicum in our Caucasus. It is a meter-tall plant with a long spike increasing every year, and with a strange crimson-brownish colour. It is surrounded by many larkspurs and many bluebell species.

  1. The fringed pink (Dianthus superbus) in our Arctic Valley. In Norway it only grows in northeastern Finnmark.

  1. And to those with special interests: In the middle of the Siberian slope there is a strange composite forming a rosette with completely sessile capitulas (= heads of numerous small flowers). It is the Central Asian Inula rhizocephala.
