Flowers. Apr-May

Flower. April-May (?). We photographed these early May. The top of the flower measures only 10 mm across, with 4 petals on top of a tubular capsule (see photo-3 and 4).

Leaves. Narrow and pointed (lanceolate), 8-10 mm long, alternating on the woody stem.

Habitat. We found these on a slope at the Plateau de Caussols, with areas of grass, rock and surrounding trees. The plateau is about 1100 m altitude, and 30 km inland from the sea.
