Flower calendarIn the course of the summer, the entire wealth of Swiss Alpine flora, around 690 different species, can be admired in the garden. The weather has a great effect on the period when a plant flowers. This can vary by two to three weeks, particularly in the Alps; the likelihood of catching a specific plant in bloom is greater at the start oft the indicated period than towards the end.
This is the time when Alpine flora is at its most fabulous. Alpine roses, silvery-leaved milfoil, Alpine poppies and Alpine asters light up the lush green meadows with sumptuous shades of red, white, yellow and blue.
