Bonjour Ori,
Nouvelle curiosité. Intéressante convergence de forme avec Androcymbium latifolium que tu as publié il y a quelques temps : deux feuilles à ras du sol et une inflorescence sans tige. Quelques rares espèces adoptent des morphologies similaires en Provence.

Never seen that !!! Thanks for share whit perfects sharpness and detials this flower,best whishes,Luciano

What an adaptive species. The color, leaf pattern, look very much like a dry climate plant - sort of a mix between cactus/succulent and beach plant. Well Done.

Really fascinating plant. Tnaks for sharing
