[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Acantholimon‪ libanoticum‬ (Plumbaginaceae) is a typical tragacanth-type shrub of high mountains growing in a thorny cushion-like form, making it resistant to wind and snow coverage. Here we see the dry calyxes, about 12 mm in diameter, after the violet flowers are gone. This was taken on Mt. Hermon at about 2200 m.
