|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This one is for Hervé, who asked for a picture of Genista fasseleta [Papilionaceae], shown earlier this week in its winter bare form, acting as support for Clematis cirrhosa (www.treknature.com/gallery/photo146101.htm). |
The specimen shown here was recorded 28 April 2007 in early bloom. While not an impressive plant, this tall shrub, up to about 3 meters high, is a noticeable element of the Carmel vegetation. Note in the picture the small leaves, buds and open flowers. As noted before, Genista is found in Israel only in the Carmel area. The closest population, to the best of my knowledge, is in Cyprus, about 300 km to the northwest.

Merci pour cette image. L'anatomie de l'espèce est effectivement bien caractéristique et son aire de répartition morcellée très intéressante.
Thanks a lot for sharing all these new flowers.
Regards and best wishes,
The high contrast of yellow flowers on bright green branches is quite pleasant, and so is your composition. We have a similar species in our macchie, maybe with a little more spiny branches. I thought Genista belonged to Fabaceae, but surely I'm mistaken. TFS.
