Bosea cypria

Bosea cypria is a shrub up to 2 m high in the family Amaranthaceae. It is an endemic species of Cyprus. It occurs sporadically in rocky areas and old walls up to 600 m altitude. The fruit is a red berry 6-8 mm long.

Worldwide there are only three species of Bosea, in Cyprus, the Canaries and the Himalayas. All three are found along the coasts of the ancient Tethys Ocean.

In my WS I have a photo of the plant in its habitat.
