Flower of the Sand, and our gratitude to Mr. Wilson.

Lliri d'arenal. Pancratium Maritimum is a bulbous perennial with a long neck and glaucous, broadly linear leaves, evergreen, but the leaves often die back during hot summers. Scape to 40 centimetres (16 in). Flowers 3–15 in an umbel, up to 15 cm (6 in) long, white. Corona two-thirds as long as the tepals. The flowers have a pleasing, exotic and very subtle lily scent, which only becomes apparent during still, windless summer nights that allow the delicate fragrance to become perceptible. Flowering is from August to October.

I would like to show our gratitude to Mr. Wilson, a huge artist and even better person, that year after year, visit us together with Mrs. Wilson, and that gave us a beautiful watercolor of the entrance to our Hotel
