Caption

Jersey, or broad-leaved thrift (Armeria arenaria). This thrift has flower heads on stems up to 60cm long. It is native to Western Europe, growing here on the limestone screes of the sub Alps of eastern France. Thrifts are a small family that thrive in locations on coasts and mountains where there is less competition. They have to be tolerant of wind, salt spray, temperature extremes, metal contaminated and poor soils that other plants cannot cope with. While looking frail they are, in fact, tough survivalists. Flowers early summer. Photographed in Mont de Lure, Provence, France.
