About

Published on Apr 4, 2012

Jednokvítek velekvětý Moneses uniflora je velmi vzácná rostlina z čeledi vřesovcovitých. Počet lokalit kde roste je v Česku velmi omezený. Je proto zajímavé sledovat jeho prvotní vegetační stadium po dlouhém zimním období.

Google Translate: Single-headed monsoon Moneses uniflora is a very rare plant of the Heresian family. The number of locations where it grows is very limited in the Czech Republic. It is therefore interesting to observe its original vegetation stage after a long winter season.
