Silene variegata - close-up

 

Silene variegata is a specialist of the mobile screes of the high Cretan mountains (from 1300m to the highest summits). The slender stems can creep about any stone that may slide down and bury the plant. The plant here was photographed just below the summit of Pachnes at 2400m.
