Ramonda nathaliae, also known as Natalie's ramonda (Serbian: Наталијина рамонда / Natalijina ramonda, Macedonian: Наталиева рамонда, romanized: Natalieva ramonda), is a species of flowering plant in the genus Ramonda that grows in Serbia, North Macedonia (mostly in the east of both[citation needed] countries) and Greece (Kilkis prefecture). The flower is considered a symbol of the Serbian Army's struggle during World War I.[2] The plant was scientifically described in 1884 from specimens growing around Niš, by Sava Petrović and Josif Pančić, who named it after Queen Natalija Obrenović.[3]

This is a small poikilohydryc plant[4][5][6] growing to 10 cm (3.9 in) in height. It grows from rocks at an angle, allowing rainwater to run off the surface of the leaves. It is hardy down to −15 °C (5 °F). In late spring, clusters of flat, lilac blue flowers rise from basal rosettes of rounded crenate evergreen leaves. In cultivation in the UK this plant has gained the Royal Horticultural Society’s Award of Garden Merit.[7][8]
