Creeping Avens

You would think that these seed heads are distinctive enough that the plant species would be easy to identify, but it took me a good hour struggling on the internet to come up with a species.

Creeping Avens Geum reptans is a rare upland species, growing on moraines, rock falls and north facing scree slopes at an altitude between 2000 and 3000 metres.

Photographed at Nufenen Pass in Switzerland, July 2018.
