The Fantastic Flora of Iceland – A Photo Essay

Iceland’s Plants are Spectacular


It’s hard to believe such beautiful flowers and plants can survive in such a harsh climate, but when we visited we marveled at how beautiful is was!  I don’t know much about plants.  You certainly wouldn’t want to leave yours in my care for long, but I do love viewing them.  Here are some of the gorgeous flowers and greenery we encountered all over Iceland.

  1. It’s amazing how nature always finds a way! I agree, such beautiful plants aren’t what you would expect to find in Iceland – but what a nice surprise! Love the photos 🙂

  2. Gorgeous! I really like that blue one in the middle in the portrait image and the purple ones above what I think are lavender (?). I’m terrible with naming anything green, but they sure look pretty.
