Barbary Nut (Αγριόκρινος)

Gynandriris sisyrinchium


My daughters spotted this wild iris, at Milina village, southern Pelion, Greece. The pale blue iris Gynandriris sisyrinchium (syn. Moraea sisyrinchium), is native to the Mediterranean region and flowers mid to late spring. Flowers don't open unless the day is warm and often not until late afternoon and they do not last very long. Την Ίριδα αυτή την φωτογράφισαν οι κόρες μου, στο χωριό Μηλίνα, στο Νότιο Πήλιο. Πρόκειται για το είδος Gynandriris sisyrinchium που είναι αυτοφυές στην λεκάνη της Μεσογείου και ανθίζει την άνοιξη...
