Anemone baldensis (NL: "Tiroolse anemoon', 'Monte-Baldo-anemoon"/ EN: Monte Baldo Anemone / DE: Tiroler Windröschen, Monte Baldo-Anemone/ FR: Anémone du mont Baldo). Despite its name suggesting an endemic species of Monte Baldo (Trentino-Italy), Anemone baldensis is a relatively widespread species, present on almost all the high mountains of southern and central Europe. This anemone is a plant typical of high-altitude rocky places and prefers environments characterized by persistent snow cover, but also pastures and alpine and subalpine meadows. In the Alps it grows on carbonate substrates. The number of petals can be very high (up to twenty). Unlike in Callianthemum coriandrifolium with which it may be confused, the stem of Anemone baldensis is always hairy. In many places the species is highly endangered.
