Hello Volcan,

Thank you for letting us know this plant I didn't know and for the note you let with your picture...

I like the pov you chose in order to let us see very well the interesting leaves against the white sky...



Merhaba Volkan,

Kum zambağını doğal ortamında görüntülemişsin. Benim de İstanbul-Şile'den çiçeklenme döneminde çektiğim kum zambakları var. Ne yazık ki bu nadir bitkimizi kıyılardan söküp bahçelerinde yetiştirmeye çalışanlar var.
Eline sağlık,
