A white alpine flower, shot in Spring towards the end of may

When you hike trough the alpine meadows in spring, you run into many spring flowers. Sometimes I recognize them and in most other cases, I can figure out which flower it is with a little help of our friends at Google. No luck this time however. I have never seen this lovely alpine flower with the curly white petals before and haven’t been able to figure out what flower it is. Tips are welcome (flowering time is end of may)!

Visit my Alpine Flora Gallery, for more photographs like this.

    I think it’s ‘Narcissus serotinus’

    Thanks all 🙂

    Das dürfte die Narcissus poeticus sein, oder auch Montreux Narzisse. Ich kann Dir nur mal empfehlen im Frühling nach Les Avants zu gehen. EIn wirklich Wunderbares Blütenmeer erwartet dich da.
