Paliuruis spina-christi
« on: June 24, 2022, 05:12:41 AM »
Paliurus spina-christi, Christís Thorn, Jerusalem Thorn
This bush was everywhere we went, lining the road to Fort Roupel, and to  Agistro, on the edge of Kerkini Lake and then at Chrisochorafa
I had no idea what it was and it always seemed to be growing next to narrow windy roads across a ditch and difficult to reach. However, I found a bush at Chrisochorafa which was standing alone in a field and managed to get a couple of decent photos
Luckily for me the Kerkini Lake Information Centre in the section about shrublands and woodlands mentions thatí Paliurus spina- christi, Christís thorn, is a very spiny shrub common in places of low altitudeí

No garden but two balconies, one facing south and the other north.
Most of my plants are succulents which need little care
