Asphodelus aestivus is a spring flowering perennial plant, it has long basal leaves and it shoots multiple flowering stems that has pinkish-white flowers. The plant produces peas sized fruits/seed pods all along the flowering stems; the fruits start up green and gradually turn brown as they mature, the pods open up later in the season to disperse the seeds contained inside.
Spotted on rocky hills/grazing pastures located in between pine woodlands on the eastern side of the Amanus Mountains in southern Turkey. Approx. Elevation 1000m.
It is a very common plant in my area, usually found growing in clusters.
