[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a coastal, narrow endemic of Israel. It grows only in sandy soils and is rare and endangered. Luckily it is protected and some populatioons are saved in small nature reserves. This one near the town of Natanya. This iris belongs to the Oncocylus irises, a unique seciotn distributed mainly along steppic areas. This species is the first to bloom of this group (already in February) and unique in its coastal, Mediterranean distribution.
