Description
The distinctive Mediterranean climate (long hot dry summers and cool wet winters) has favoured distinct and rich vegetation and plant communities, some of whose elements survived here during the glaciations that affected northern Europe.
This early tour around the deep-water Ceramic Gulf combines botany and archaeology and is timed for the spring flush of annual and perennial herbaceous plants, of bulbs, orchids, trees and shrubs. All grow in particular profusion at archaeological sites. Conspicuous are the cisti and gladioli at Orak island, the irises on the way to Labranda, the blue-flowered annual lupins and yellow-flowered Jerusalem sage on Kedreai island, and a dazzling display of the pink-flowered convolulus against the white tumbled marble blocks at Knidos. Even the mandrake flowers here. Everywhere are the aromatic shrubs such as lavender, thyme and rosemary adored by Gertrude Jekyll and collected by her from sites on the coast further north in the 1860s. Trees surviving here during the glaciations include the Judas tree and carob.
