Hasan, hello.
One of the most notable catchflies in your country. This perennial plant is endemic for the northern and the western coast of the Black Sea. The plants flower from June to August. It is, as you have noted, characteristic species for the grey dunes.
It's quite "furry"; and this one has caught, rather, "trapped" zillions of bugs on it.
Very well presented, indeed!!!
A lovely sandy B/G.
Best and most kind regards from Mario in Canada.

Hello Hasan,
What an unusual looking flowering plant you have shared with us. The elongated bloom is quite interesting and has some very unique features. Is the plant on the left covered with a species of aphids or some other insect?
