Western Isles Wildflowers
Western Isles wildflowers is a collection of information about our Hebridean wildflowers including identification hints, traditional herbal uses and general plant lore.
Mountain everlasting is an alpine plant which is also known as Scottish edelweiss.
This wildflower has downy leaves and stems, it is a spreading plant forming mats where it grows in grassland on ledges, banks and in other high and dry places.
The male and female flowers of mountain everlasting are on separate stems. The pinkish female flowers are like small soft brushes, and the male flowers are rather like daisies with pink middles. Both stems have a papery character.
