More Menorcan flowers. Hedysarum Coronarium.

Hedysarum coronarium  is a perennial herb native to Malta, Northern Africa Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia, cultivated for animal fodder and hay, and for honey production. It is shown in all its glory in Menorca during the month of May. Although it may seem for its abundance, that it is a plant native to Menorca but was imported as forage in the mid 1800s. In Spain it is only located in Menorca and Cadiz.

Conducted tour of Collingwood House for Hotel guests. Every Tuesday 10.30 by Paco Montanari, the owner.
