In the forest area of the garden there is an area devoted to plants which live on high mountains

Thymus cherlerioides, Θυμάρι

This plant originated from Mt. Olympus in the Regional Unit of   Larissa, Greece

I am not sure if the mauve plant in the same border is the same Thyme

Plants threatened with extinction
In one area of the garden there was this notice and what looked like new plant labels with all the Latin name and where that particular plant originated

Sideritis scardica, Τσάι του βουνού. Greek mountain tea
Is classified as NT, of the least concern  and the plant originated from the Regional Unit of Pieria

Yellow flowering Euphorbia

These plants were growing very successfully near the Visitors Information Center

The second photo shows yellow Euphorbia again, in a border near the cherry trees. The borders on the hill can be seen also

Unfortunately, this garden needs a good injection of funding, hopefully this will happen when things get back to ‘normal’

Lychnis coronaria, Rose campion, Σταυρουδάκι
I am afraid the photo of the label is not good enough to make out where this plant originated
In another area of the garden there is the same plant with the name given as a synonym of Lychnis coronaria, Silene coronaria
