Parnassia palustris var. multiseta inhabits
the damp part of the mountain grassland and bears a single 2.0-2.5cm
across white flowers on the top of the 10- to 40cm stalks facing the
sky. Most interesting is that this species has five staminodes ( a
term that means stamen not having the ability to produce pollen),
each of which splits into a dozen to twenty-two, on top of each
creating a beautiful yellow nectary-ball. It is fascinatingly
beautiful. Bloom time: August-September.
