29. Centaury
(Centaurium umbellatum Gilib)

29. Centaury

This is a plant which varies much in size according to its situation. On sand dunes and open sites it remains small - two to four inches, but by the edges of woods and other sheltered positions up to ten inches. It has a long flowering period - June to September, and on the sand dunes it is one of the most beautiful flowers. The painting depicts a dune specimen.
