Pindos 2023
« Gepost op: 20 oktober 2023, 17:31:09 »
Hello! Time to introduce myself and for you to practice a bit your English  :D I moved to Belgium some time ago but originally I am from the Pindos area of Greece. Here are some photos from this year.

The first picture is Allium trifoliatum, normally it flowers white but there are many forms. A compact allium that flowers with the leaf in green state.

Achillea umbellata with Cerastrium candidissimum growing through. Both Greek endemic species!

Ramonda serbica, what to say first for this Balkan endemic! Known as a shade plant but in habitat i have observed that they grow equally good in sun. By mid-july the plants go totally dormant.

Malcomia orsiniana subsp. serbica. I love this one and I believe it deserves wider appreciation!!

Aubrieta scardica. it is very hard to identify Aubrieta's, surely for me. A clear characteristic of this species is that the seed pods are compressed, almost flat, and very long compared to the width.

Saxifraga marginata, a few days too early for the flowers. But with this plant they are not necessary, it is always beautiful!

Colchicum boissieri, at least if I assume from the very small size and the location. But could be also everything else.

Habitat with Valeriana officinalis and Lamium garganicum. In the far back left Lunaria annua subsp. pachyrhiza.
