This plant is recognizable by its beautiful white flowers with 5 ribbed petals. The last shot shows the plant's heart-shaped leaf, found at the base. Each stem carries one flower. Usually found in patches but this one was standing alone along a mountain path.
Found mostly in high mountain meadows, but also in marshy places, on the banks of streams, in mountain bogs. Spotted here at 1400m ASL.
Flowers in July and August.
