Aguja de pastor
This beautiful little Storksbill is native to south of the Iberian peninsula and Morocco. It can grow from 5-25cms tall and in the spring there are carpets of pink everywhere in uncultivated fields and pastures. It flowers from December to May. In the past it was used as a diuretic and also for uterine bleeding.
