Description & Remarks

For the last ca. 100 years this plant was known as Statice graeca or Limonium graecum. During 2005-2006 it became evident that the two species are endemic to their countries. The true Limonium graecum grows only in Greece and Limonium galilaeum is endemic to the coastal area of the Upper Galilee, Israel. The article describing the latter and differentiating the new species from it relatives in the genus Limonium, is published in the journal Flora Mediterranea 16, published in December 2006 in Palermo. Details about this issue are going to be displayed in the 6th Newsletter of our website in January or February 2007.
