The dwarf bellflower(Campanula cochleariifolia), the white silverroot(Dryas octopetala), the alpine edelweiss(Leontopodium nivale), the alpine leek (Linaria alpina) or the blue-green saxifrage(Saxifraga caesia) would be more likely to be found on the peaks of the mountains than in the valley along the Lech. But here they also bloom in the riparian forests and on the gravel banks.
With the melting of the snow or through mudflows, their seeds are washed to the Lech and find similar climatic conditions as at the summit of the Allgäu and Lechtal Alps. Cold in winter, hot in summer, dry and windy, with high UV reflection from the light-colored gravel - this can also be the climate on the gravel banks and in the pine forests along the Lech. "Alpine alluvials" on the Lech - the visitors from the mountains have rightly earned their name.
