what a strange flower. presumably the hairs have some connection with the trapping of insects and pollenation?

floots: at least it sounds better although it amounts to the same thing :)

anonyhair: to be honest, i don't know. but these bluebelly things grow in the subalpine region and it's quite possible that the hairs have protective function (prevent excessive evaporation and suchlike), perhaps they play a role in pollenation but i can't be sure.
