Bistort is a strong cold-resistant plant of moist acid habitats that likes to grow in swamps, grassy bogs, subalpine and alpine mountain meadows and in chilly tundras.
Its pink flowers can be admired from late spring until mid-summer.

I found this exceptional plant while exploring the bog land.
Location : Nature reserve ‘Hohes Venn’ (Baraque Michel - Belgium)

Dutch name : Adderwortel
German name : Schlangen-Knöterich (auch Wiesen-Knöterich genannt)
Latin name : Bistorta officinalis (prev. Polygonum bistorta)
