[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Caralluma europaea var. judaica is found in the arid part of the Mediterranean region in Israel, penetrating also the semidesert. It occurs always is rock crevices. Eli Becker form the Jerusalem Botanical Gardens directed us to this site, at the Valley of the Cross in the middle of Jerusalem. It occurs there naturally among the rocks, just beyond the church fence. A few days ago I posted a close up of the flower.
