Sempervivum reginae-amaliae has a relatively large area, apart from Greece in Albania is growing, perhaps even in Croatian Biokovo and even in southern Macedonia. I took a photo on the tops of the mountain plateau Baba (Pelister) below the top of Stiv. I did not know about the occurrence of S. reginae-amaliae (2420 m), so I thought it was an extreme form of P. marmoreum, which also grows here, but below (1600 m approx). I discovered my mistake when at home :-))

Hm, this is as close to the top of Pelister I'm gonna get! Breathtaking view but such a dangarous path! But I guess you love to climb mountains.

So much about Sempervivums in former Yugoslavia (now Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia & Hercegovina, Montenegro, Serbia, Kosovo and FYR Macedonia) is yet to be discovered!

Yes, the road was very dangerous, but I love the mountains and we also had beautiful weather :-). Sempervivum reginae-amaliae plateau in the mountains Baba Wale describe it, but I did not know. Balkan Peninsula is the "Promised Land" for lovers Houseleeks.
