Thanks for your comments, Skippy and Terratoonie, I have known this plant, but really found out first this one in a ravine, in the course of a 12km walking, taking photos, so that It took for about 1.5 hrs to photograph the flower, waiting the best shutter chance which short hairs with young leaves and stems were strongly reflecting sun shine.

Thanks for your comment, Nelke, yes a little plant, height is within about 40 cm, flower size is 1 - 2.5 cm, colour is pale pink and white. I can't create surroundings it 's blooming, so i don't dig it up and plant in a garden. It is sold, so i think comparatively easy to grow in a garden, but full sun is inappropriate, judging from the place to grow in nature. I think it is most beautiful that native plants are flowering in nature, so they shouldn't be generally kept in a garden.

Thanks TT, yes, but it is difficult to take it always .........
