[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This spectacular Astragalus ("milk-vetch") species was recently re discovered ) on Mt. Hermon. Ori tells me that another site had been discovered on 2008.

The plants are tall, to 1 m in hight (see WS), and carry globular inflorescences, up to 8 cm in diameter. A close-up of the flowers is also shown on the WS.

I could not find any mention of this species in Wikipedia!
