Cold beauty

The Espeletia schultzii is a species from the Asteraceae family of the sunflowers. It lives in the Venezuelan and Colombian Andes and you can find it up to 4300 metres over sea level. It blossoms from October to January. It is under threat because of humans wanting to take them away for commercial purposes.
