  • Flora

    Andromeda polifolia, the bog rosemary

    This small shrub lives only in acidic peat bogs with sphagnum moss up to 1500 m altitude. Present only in three sectors in Limousin, it is rare and protected. The numerous stands present on this site make it an exceptional place to see the plant. Its pink bells appear towards the end of spring.


With a surface area of 39 ha, this peat bog pond classified Natura 2000, protected by a prefectural decree of biotope protection, presents a variety of peaty environments richly biodiverse.
