Heather, one of the Polish most-beloved autumn shrubs growing in the mountains and forests all across the country is currently blooming.
“It grows en-masse. This is why when it blossoms in September it creates colorful compositions. If it manages to colonize an area it will stop other plants from growing nearby,” said Tomasz Zając, a guide at Tatra Mountains.
High up in the mountains the shrub can live up to 40 years and its seeds can last up to a hundred.
