Edelweiss, the national flower of Austria

The edelweiss is a white flower found high in the Austrian Alps. The latin for edelweiss is leontopotium alpinum.

This enchanting flower was sought after by many suitors desiring to enchant the heart of a young maiden. The edelweiss flower, much like the fleeting heart of the young lady is never easy to capture. Suitors have to scale the Alps, high into the thin fresh air, searching the white pure snows of the untamed mountains. This flower represents purity, wild freshness and unspoiled freedom - all these you can find in our valley, the "Naturpark Riedingtal".
