Piz Palü, located in the border region between the Swiss canton Grisons and the Italian province Sondrio, rises to a respectable altitude of 3,900 m. It owes its name to the Alp Palü which consisted of marshy grasslands (lat. palus = marsh).
The Englishman Kenelm Edward Digby and his mountain guide Peter Jenny succeeded in the first documented ascent to the peak in 1866. The well-known film by Leni Riefenstahl “Die weisse Hölle vom Piz Palü“ of 1929 pays him homage in an impressive style.
Potentilla clusiana is a species in the genus Potentilla which contains approximately 246 to 686 species and belongs to the family of the Rosaceae (Rose Family). The type species of the genus is Potentilla reptans.
Is native to the mountain regions of Italy, Central Europe, and the western Balkan Peninsula.
