|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|I think this twins belong to genus scorzonera, which comprises around 100 species and one of them is Scorzonera Rosea or Viper's Grass.|
The word scorzonera comes from Italian 'scorza' (=bark) and 'nera' (=black). The second explanation is from Old French, where 'scorzon' means snake.
This is a relative rare mountain plant, found in Soriška planina, Karavanke and isolated on western Slovenian mountains.
Slovenian name : rožnati gadnjak.
Species: Scorzonera Rosea
