Gagea juliae in Troodos mountains, Cyprus
« on: April 08, 2012, 07:23:33 AM »
I found a few of these growing on shaded rocky roadside cliffs along the Troodos ridge road, just east of Stavros tis Psokas, yesterday. They often grew near Arabis purpurea.

I am fairly sure of my ID, based on Meikle's Flora of Cyprus, but confirmation or correction would be welcomed.
