The attractive Degenia velebitica is a rare endemism of Northern Croatia, and seems to be one if the national symbols of the country, because it is shown on the Croatian 50 Lipa coin. It is early in flower, in April and May depending on altitude. I photographed the plant in flower in the Botanical Garden of the University of Mainz, Germany, in a non-typical season. The non-flowering plant grows in the Botanical Garden of the Velebit at the Zavivan mountain.
