From above, these parts of the plants are painted in green, and from below in yellow. Along the edges are pink or red. Green and bare pedunks. Kizyl flowers are small, their diameter reaches 3 mm. Plant fruits are painted in the color of the cinnabar.
This decorative shrub blooms from June to July. The fruiting period falls on late summer and early autumn.
Where it grows
This representative of the family of pinkflowers can be found in Eurasia and some Scandinavian countries. It is common in the Murmansk region, especially many copies growing at the Peschanka River, Cola. The area of growth includes the territory of the Kola Peninsula: the plant is found in the hibans, in the Lovozersky mountains, in the valleys of the rivers Voronya and Kola. You can find this decorative shrub on the coast of the White Sea, at the top of the Kandalaksha Gulf, on the territory of the Republic of Karelia.
Cinnine-red caring prefers to settle on the banks of rivers, on sea coasts. He usually “hides” in crevices of rocks, in birch trees, among boulders. Sometimes the plant is found in mixed, namely birch-and-haired forests. A tank can be seen on the rocks, in birch curvature and on the slopes of the southern exposition. Rare rocky pine trees and river valleys in the mountains are also irrigated in small populations. This species does not like stagnant moisture.
This plant does not propagate vegetatively. The replenishment of the number occurs with the help of seeds. Very often the seeds have a fairly low energy for germination. The degree of death of both seedlings and young shoots is great.
The Kinnar-red caring is listed in the Red Book of the Murmansk Region and the Republic of Karelia as a rare. To date, on the Kola Peninsula, in the north of Karelia there are 100 plants. Active locations of about 90, but the population is often only 10 copies. Moreover, old individuals prevail in populations. During these 20 years, the number of species has halved.
Due to the development of mining industry and active deforestation, the plants of plants began to be reduced. The number of population was also influenced by the scouring of crushed stone during the active melting of snow. An important role in the survival of the species is played by the rather slow development of the kizilnik.
Today the plant is protected in Karelia, on the shore of the Kandalaksha Gulf. The representative of the pinkflowers is under the control of scientists and in the Lapland Reserve. The cultivation of the plant takes place in Kirovsk, namely in the Polar-Botanical Garden, in Moscow at Moscow State University, in Krasnodar at the Chisinau Agricultural Institute, in the Amur Region.
