are covered with Cistus and a number of "gorses" and many other
shrubs; some common and numerous some rarer. Arbutus andrachne,
also growing in Greece and continental Turkey is loocaly common.
It is - according to me - less beautiful than A. unedo, menziesii
and canariensis. It has a reddish smooth bark with smooth leaves
and little Fl. It blooms in autumn, sometimes in spring, and doesn't
seems to bear both fruits and Fl. like A. unedo and A. canariensis.
Clematis cirrhosa is a nice plant common in scrubs around St Hilarion.
On the road to Kantara, I found a beautiful round shrub which I
later identified as Thymelaea tartonaira ssp argentea var linearifolia,
obviously a member of the Thymeleaceae; it has small numerous yellow
scented with orange stamens. If other ssp of the same sp. look ugly
on pictures, this one is truly a nice plant. .
