[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here displayed is the maltese endemic plant, Cheirolophus crassifolius. It is endemic to out island and it is more commonly known as the maltese rock centuary. It comes from the Asteraceae family and has a discoid head. It produces achenes which are dispersed by wind thanks to the feather like pappus which acts as a transport machanism. It is a beauty to watch.
