Where you find Salix myrsinites you often find other exciting plants too!
Rogaland, Norway - with cool, often rainy summers (29C max) and mild, often rainy winters (180 cm/year)!
A photo from another place with lots of exciting plants, Erigeron aureus:
Calgary, Alberta, Canada - Zone 3
-30 C to +30 C (rarely!); elevation ~1130m; annual precipitation ~40 cm
Unfortunately we have no all yellow fleabanes here only some with yellow disc florets.
Heading to the mountains on a daytrip last week, these are near home... about 7:30am, misty morning looking at the hills just north of us, then a hazy view on the main highway looking west to the mountains..
west central alberta, canada; just under 1000m; record temps:min -45C/-49F;max 34C/93F; http://picasaweb.google.ca/cactuscactus http://urbanehillbillycanada.blogspot.com/
Erigeron caespitosum (I think- I id'd this before I had the Flora, haven't gone back to really key it out) with seed capsules of Linum lewisii in the montane zone, near Abraham Lake, Alberta, Sept 4
Looks like a gardenworthy plant whatever the name is!
Seems easy to make roads in Alberta!
Given the very late bloom and the general look of it, I wonder if it might not be an Aster?
Just an interesting scene with colourful rocks:
