Spanish Aragon Pyrenees

The region of Aragon is located in the northeast area of Spain, running from the Ebro River in the south to the Pyrenees in the north. This presentation will illustrate the alpine plants that bloom in April and May in the province of Huesca. We will travel from the foothills of the pre-Pyrenees near the city of Huesca, north across several ranges to end at Piedra de San Martín, at an altitude of 5,774 feet, near the French border. Highlights include Ramonda myconi, Saxifraga longifoliaPrimula minima, and bulbs. Join Todd on a virtual tour of the plants that grow in this spectacular region of Europe.
