[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is for Hernan ("saguzar"), who shared with us (24 November) a lovely picture of Echium (and sought ID).

The one in the picture is Echium judaeum, which is endemic to Israel. Note the flowers are red when young, and turn blue when old (that was seen in Hernan’s picture, too). This specimen was taken last March on Mt. Gilbo'a, home of the Gilbo'a Iris (have a look in my collection, please).

Hello Ishi,
I´m so glad for the dedicatory! Certainly, this species is very similar that we have here, but I don´t know if was introduced, only grows in countryside or not worked land.The argentinian variety has purple tone sometimes, not so red as yours.
Thanks for sharing!

Hi Ishi,
It's a beautiful splash of Echiumn flowers. Somehow, the picture looked a bit dull. I have therefore done a WorkShot to increase the contrast. I hope you will like it. Please let me know.

hello Ishi,
Beautiful Echium flowers. In your country they are more red as in our, where they are more blue, but at the beginning a little purple too. These flowers look as they would be singing :-)
Have a nice day
