Pancratium maritimum 1

BBB2131 [Pancratium maritimum]

A beautiful flower found in summer on the sand by the beach. At this stage the flower is at the end of its life-cycle. It will soon produce its "characteristic fruits [that] resemble pieces of charcoal; they are light in weight and float on the sea, which disperses them along the shore". [See: Papiomitoglou Vangelis Wild Flowers of Greece, Mediterraneo Editions, 2006]
