[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Holyhocks (Alcea) are such impressive plants, this one was 2.5 m. tall. Along the Jordan Valley populations of alcea setosa have rather pale flowers compared with the darker forms of the inner country.

Hi Ori,
We've been seeing a lot of Malvaceae and the butterfly associated with Malvaceae on TN lately.
Its amazing to see Hollyhocks in their natural environment.
I used to grow these in my garden too.

Nicely shown with the landscape and great to see in the natural environment. TFS Ori.


Bonjour Ori,
Remarquable publication valorisant bien les sujets surtout compte tenu de leur taille.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hi Ori, very dramatic shot to indicate the tall flowering plants. Very sharp and excellent clarity. The colours is soft and pretty.


A beautiful Holyhock group within a nice perspective Ori, ours too are much darker coloured. TFS this my friend.

Hi Ori,

I like this shot a lot, attractive plants, photographed well, and also shows the habitat where they grow really well.

Thanks for sharing,

  • Great

Hello Ori,
A lovely view of these Holyhocks in the wild! Here they tend to be very popular in old cottage gardens along the coast while they don't seem to survive in the wild. I like the low POV and the way they stretch up to the blue sky. Nice background too.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla
