Beach blooms

One of the most large and noticeable summer flowers occurring in Malta is the sea daffodil (Pancratium maritimum L.), which requires a sandy habitat and is therefore quite rare. It usually blooms in mid-summer, however, the Għajn Tuffieħa population is already in full bloom. I took the following photos in the area yesterday.

Another population of the plant occurs on the sand dunes at Ramla l-Ħamra, Gozo (photographed 26.I.2009).
