The Sea Daisies (Asteriscus maritimus)

The Sea Daisies (Asteriscus maritimus, Spanish: Estrella de Mar, Catalan: Pare i fill), also known as Sea Aster or Gold Coin, is in flower now, between April and July. It can be found in coastal areas, here in the Western Mediterranean basin as well as in the Canaries. The gorgeous flower can be cultivated in your very own rock garden, too, and keeps well in pots. This species prefers a well-drained, preferably sandy soil with moderate levels of moisture and exposure to full sun. Propagation is by seed or cuttings. You may find it in your local garden centre.

The photo was taken near Santanyi, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: April 30th, 2011. The time was 16:57:43.
