I love this plant, which grows in the Australian Alps in Victoria and New South Wales. It grows in wet bogs above the tree-line in the mountains and it flowers in amongst the melting snow, even flowering under the snow. My picture was taken with snow only one metre from the plant and I had to ski into the spot where it grows to get the photo. I love the Caltha genus, which has a very wide distribution. I have now photographed Caltha species in England, Canada and Australia. I have no experience of growing any of them, but would love to try.
