"...This extraordinary flower grows in the high mountains of Austria, Germany and Switzerland. It is Switzerland’s national flower. It is the symbol of deep love and devotion whereby men harvest the flower on daring steeps and fatal climbs to prove their love and devotion. It is also the symbol of adventure and sacrifice. The actual German translation of the word, “Edelweiss,” literarily means noble and white. Edelweiss has a woolly appearance of white hairs, on its leaf and flower structures that create the flower’s hairy and silvery character. It grows to heights of 16 inches and develops its flower into a double-star formation..."
