We found this red beauty with Bayram when leaving Çığlıkara mountains at down. It was a magic day and place. In one day, I saw so many species, new for me, including some rare one.

Rosularia sempervivoides (Fisch. ex M. Bieb.) Boriss.
Syn: Sedum sempervivoides Fisch. ex M. Bieb.
Family: Crassulaceae

The characteristic fiery-red flowers of this alpine Rosularia is quite unique in the family. Anthems and styles are also red or reddish.
Distribution: Turkey (Anatolia), Georgia, Armenia, Caucasus, North Iran.
Habitat: Dry or rocky slopes, 1200-2900 m.

Rosularia look similar to Sempervivum except that they have bell-shaped blooms instead of star-shaped.

Hello Catherine,
This is a stunning Sedum species with bright red flowers and your capture is wonderful! Very pretty individual flowers too, very clearly shown here in this fine composition. I wonder if there's a long stem between the 'bunch' of flowers and the leaves?
Many thanks for sharing and have a nice weekend, Ulla

Bonjour Catherine,
La prise de vue en plongée donne un effet artistique à ta publication sans pour autant lui enlever la restitution des volumes et des détails.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello Catherine,
a very attractive and pretty red flowers. You have defined it so nicely that it stands out pleasantly against the soft blurry ground.
well seen in exciting details of the small petals and yellow stamens.
Well presented plant shot.


Fuerza y sutileza en los detalles de esta curiosa, bella y llamativa flor.
El fondo es excelente. La saturación del rojo quizá algo alta.
Un abrazo: J. Ignasi.

Hello Catherine,

What a gorgeous flower cluster, really striking! And an excellent photo of it, nicely done. The color is rich and strong, an amazing contrast to the dry, dusty-looking habitat.

Thanks for sharing,

An eyecatching flower, very contrasted with the bg! Vivid colours, the framing and overall composition are beautiful!
