Naturalistic description of the flora
During the summer season, and particularly in the month of June, the Glacier Garden biotope is covered by a spectacular white cloak created by the spherical flowers of white cottongrass (Eriophorum scheuchzerl), an artic and alpine species that grows close to small lakes and marshy pools.

Looking carefully, common cottongrass (Eriophorum angustifolium), a little less showy but still very attractive with its nice bunches of white tufts, can also be found. It is quite interesting to note that these two species have come all the way up here from the boggy and marshy Cavagliola plain.
