Asian Globe flower, Trollius asiaticus, Norilsk, Taimyr. Russia
The Asian Globeflower (Trollius asiaticus) is native in Northeast European Russia, West Siberia and Central Asia. Although known as garden flower, in the wild it usually grows in wet places, especially in grasslands and forests. It commonly grows to about 20 cm or higher. In the partly dead forests around sulfur polluting Norilsk it is a particular beauty.
