Pancratium maritimum

Pancratium maritimum

This is out of any doubt the most beautiful coastal plant in our region. Its native distribution includes the Mediterranean, the Black Sea coast, Turkey and Caucasus. In Bulgaria it is seen in certain spots at the Southern Black Sea coast, where it is confined to sand dunes. The flowering is in July and August. Due to its rarity it is considered endangered in this country, it is protected by the national Biodiversity Act. For more information see the Red Data Book of the Republic of Bulgaria.
