mountain flower

I love this spiky mountain flower and its colors that form a stunning green / silver / lilac gradient.

Its botanical name is Eryngium alpinum but it is commonly called “the queen of the Alps”. It grows spontaneous but it is also often used as an ornamental plant: I saw it more than once decorating the graves of some alpine guides.
