Trientalis

Trientalis

 

a genus of plants of the family Primulaceae. The plants are low perennial herbs with slender spreading rootstocks. The uneven leaves are verticillately approximate on the stem apex. The axillary flowers, which are mostly seven-parted, are solitary or in groups of two to four on long, slender pedicels. The corolla is white and rotate; the fruit is a globose capsule. There are three to four species, distributed in the temperate and frigid zones of the northern hemisphere. The USSR has two species: T. europaea and T. arctica. The former grows in spruce forests and, less commonly, in mixed forests, thickets, felled forests, and parks. T. arctica grows in the tundras and mountains of Eastern Siberia and the Far East.

Two rather specialised wild flowers that most of us are unlikely to see are trientalis europaea, the chickweed wintergreen, thriving in wet acid moorland and coniferous forests and the brookweed, samolus valerandii, found on bare ground near the sea but which may also be seen being used as a submersed aquatic in well-lit cool water aquariums.
