Weekend Riddle:

Who am I? where in Israel do I grow? what other close species grows in Israel?



In the picture you can see Centranthus longiflorus. note its long single stamen, that gave it its hebrew name – one-stamen. it grows in Mount Hermon.
another Centranthus  species you can find in Israel is Centranthus ruber which is a naturalized species that escaped gardening in the Jerusalem area.
In this picture you can see Centranthus ruber  on the right and Centranthus longiflorus  on the left. both of them grow in our Botanical Garden!

The weekend riddle is published in Facebook every Friday noon, the solution is published in Facebook on the following Sunday, together with the publication on this site.
