Veenpluis (NL)

Veenpluis (Eriophorum angustifolium) is een plant uit de cypergrassenfamilie (Cyperaceae). De plant groeit op vochtige, zure grond, zoals heide en veen. Het vormt daar zoden met behulp van uitlopers. Opvallend is het lange, witte vruchtpluis, waaraan de naam ontleend is.


De plant is te vinden op natte heide, in veenmosrietland, turfgaten en op bulten van levend hoogveen. Verder langs greppels en in spoorbermen, hoogveenslenken en bij vennen, op open plekken in berkenbroekbos, in duinvalleien en zandgroeven, op heischraal grasland en hooiland.


In Nederland is veenpluis zeldzaam tot zeer zeldzaam.



Taken in the late evening, at about 11 p.m. near my son´s house in Vigra, Norway.

I like the so warm and soft light in the North, the clean air, the empty landscapes, the nature...

Im Wind tanzendes Wollgras —

Nahe dem Horizont Staubwolken

als Zeugen eines vorbeifahrenden Fahrzeuges.


Cotton-gras dancing in the wind —

Dust Clouds near to the horizon

as attesters of a car driving past.

Wollgras (Eriophorum vaginatum)

How many roads must a man walk down

Before you call him a man ?

How many seas must a white dove sail

Before she sleeps in the sand ?

Yes, how many times must the cannon balls fly

Before they're forever banned ?

The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind

The answer is blowin' in the wind.


Yes, how many years can a mountain exist

Before it's washed to the sea ?

Yes, how many years can some people exist

Before they're allowed to be free ?

Yes, how many times can a man turn his head

Pretending he just doesn't see ?

The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind

The answer is blowin' in the wind.


Yes, how many times must a man look up

Before he can see the sky ?

Yes, how many ears must one man have

Before he can hear people cry ?

Yes, how many deaths will it take till he knows

That too many people have died ?

The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind

The answer is blowin' in the wind.

Wollgras (Eriophorum vaginatum)

Auf dem Berg gab´s ganz viel Wollgras :)

Eriophorum scheuchzeri Hoppe, syn.: Eriophorum altaicum Meinsh.

Scheuchzer's Cottongrass, White Cottongrass, DE: Alpen-Wollgras, Scheuchzer-Wollgras

Slo.: Scheuchzerjev munec


Dat.: July 3. 2017

Lat.: 46.43893 Long.: 13.64412

Code: Bot_1071/2017_DSC02193


Habitat: small high mountain march; flat terrain; calcareous ground with some siliceous rocks; full sun, wet ground; elevation 1.970 m (6.450 feet); average precipitations ~ 3.000 mm/year, average temperature 0-2 deg C, alpine phytogeographical region.


Substratum: soil.


Place: Mt. Mangart plateau, between the largest snow valley and Red rock place; East Julian Alps, Posočje, Slovenia EC.


Comment: Eriophorum scheuchzeri is a true Arctic plant. It is present all around the northern hemisphere and particularly common far north, where it sometimes forms large fields. Zillions of its beautifully silver-white fruit heads look like snow covered ground. However, it is present also in boreal regions. Of cause, in southern regions of its occurrence it can survive only in cold high mountain conditions.


In Slovenia Eriophorum scheuchzeri is a rare and protected plant, constricted to acid bog habitats in the Alps. Such places with rarely less than 2.000 m elevation are rare in my country. Hence each encounter with this beautiful plant is an inimitable experience.

Pravilnik o uvrstitvi ogroženih rastlinskih in živalskih vrst v rdeči seznam, Uradni list RS, št. 82/2002 (Regulation of enlisting of endangered plant and animal species onto Red List, Official Gazette of Republic Slovenia, no. 82/2002) (2002). Enlisted in the Slovene Red List of rare and endangered species, marked by "V" representing a vulnerable species.
