Knapweed

Centaurea sp

Description:

Medium sized annual, some 30 cm tall, member of Asteraceae family. Forms a basal rosette of leaves; with stems bearing terminal purple flowers typical for the genus.

Habitat:

Originating from Mediterranean, this knapweed is usually found on dry rocky or stony soils often on dry hills or mountains. Here, observed on a dry rocky-and-grassland escarpment, dominating Skradin valley. The rich Skradin valley is close to Krka National Park, park itself enclosing a river forming several waterfalls and lakes, and surrounded by a lush broad leaved forest. However, this escarpment is much more arid, and covered by a vegetation adapted to prolonged arid conditions.
