Wild flowers in Switzerland

I would like to see wild flowers in Switzerland . I have to be there end of May / early June but this may be a bit early for the higher alpine meadows. Any ideas of lower places which could be in bloom by then ?

End of May:
White narcissus between Col de Soladier and Col de Jaman (Montreux); at most other places the blooming season of this flower will be over
Alpine Rose (rhododendron) at all mountains around lake Lugano and Lake Maggiore
Trumpet Genzian (Gentiana acaulis): same places as alpine roses, plus Jura heights
Globeflower (trollius): Alps and pre-alps between about 1000 and 1600 metres, some Jura mountains
Buttercup: almost everywhere
Dandelion: almost everywhere
The alpine flora at Val Canaria (Airolo) is usually fine in early June
