A flora of its own and full of color!

The esparceta, the golden buttons, the grandalla, the mountain Antilla... These are some of the flora species that we can easily find in the different natural areas of the Principality.

The esparceta

It is a perennial plant that grows in the Pyrenees, although it is native to Eurasia. It can grow up to 80 centimeters in high and has 6 to 12 pairs of leaflets. Formerly it was used as a hardware for sheep, horses and rabbits. On top of that, it gives a very appreciated monofloral honey.

The golden buttons

They are present in most of Catalonia, including the Pyrenees. It blooms from March to July and its flowers are 4 to 15 mm wide and of an intense yellow color. It grows in areas going from sea level to 1,400 meters of altitude.

The mountain Antilla

It is recognized by its odd-numbered leaves and by having many small elliptical leaflets. The flowers are grouped in a glomerulus carried by a tall peduncle protruding from the bush. The petals are usually reddish or pink.

The grandalla

It has always been one of the most appreciated flowers in Andorra. It is very perfumed and is associated with Greek poetry and mythology. Its petals are white and it has a central yellow crown with a red finish. It blooms in spring and is used to make more than 10% of the current perfumes.
