Solenopsis minuta

This is a charming tiny annual which is common on Crete, particularly in the west. It grows to about 25 mm high and in favourable sites such as sheltered terracing can form carpets of soft blue in spring. As you might guess it is related to Lobelia.

and this year Solenopsis laurentia was found the first time in Isael. It is the tiniest thing, therefore was mis-traced in the past...
