I like this one too.
Thanks, did you know that this plant (yareta) is the same family as carots !!
That's really wierd - I think that this is the same plant that we saw in the Cordillera Huayhuash in this picture - is it?
What a great picture... have to visit Huaywash soon !
The plants on your picture need a lot of water and are from the Juncacae family. It seems to be either Distichia muscoides or Oxychloe andina.
Yareta (or llareta, Azorella compacta) grows far from water and belongs to a completely different family (Umbelliferae).
