From May to June you can find the impressive red florescence of the viper’s bugloss (Echium wildpretii) in the Nationalpark. The flowers do not only attract visitors but pollinators which pollinate the plant. From the bee’s polen we can even make honey.

Did you know that the viper’s bugloss got its name from its seeds?

The seeds have the shape of a viper’s head and in greek Echium means viper.
