Limoniastrum monopetalum

Limoniastrum monopetalum 


This hermaphraditic shrub is found near salt water lagoons, also rocky areas and sandy loam.
It grows from 30cms to 2m tall and loves salty air and drought. It flowers from February to July. It is native to SW Spain, in the bay of Cadiz, North Africa to Egypt. I found it for the first time at Las Salinas, Bonanza, Cadiz province.
