The splendour of flowers and plants  in Eggental

The splendour of flowers and plants in Eggental

Which plants are protected?

Almost from day to day the shades of our meadows change and little by little lilies of the valley, gentians, primroses, orchids, bellflowers, anemones, fire lilies, Turk's cap and many other plants bloom. At the edge of the path there are blueberries and cranberries as well as raspberries and fields of intensely pink flowering alpine roses.

We see it as our duty to protect our beautiful and diverse nature in the Eggental. Many wild plants and flowers in South Tyrol are protected by law, as 27% of native plant species are already endangered. 
The specially protected species include aconite, arnica, most ferns, all carnations and gentians, edelweiss, bluestem, chess flowers, irises and pasque flowers, as well as all wild orchids, crocuses, tulips and daffodils. 

Sohow, the basic rule is to admire the plants where they grow and not to take them home.
