« on: October 28, 2007, 04:30:22 PM »
Hi all ,

by my visit on the island of Karpathos I found in the mountains these plants -knows anybody what this is ?
It must be rare -I saw only one this group of plants -they grows on calcy rocks in light shade

Thank you in advance
Hans

Hans it's very similar to alpinus and calazonus or their hybrid. I dont know where the species come from

It looks too big and tall to be either DD alpinus or callizonus. But the whitish plant with it looks interesting. Any ideas as to what that is?
