Below Snowdon peak. 670m altitude.

I have long wanted to see this for myself and success at last - not a perfect day and the flower wasn't going to open any more but a lovely plant of this species showing all the major features.

This is another plant that has changed name recently - it is now a "Star-of-Bethlehem".
