Pinguicula vallisneriifolia in situ


Recommended Posts

Pinguicula season is advancing in southern Spain.

Here, a large flowering clump of P. vallisneriifolia. One of my favourite species, fortunately still with several healthy populations with hundreds to thousands of plants.

This species typically grows on calcareous cliffs that are very wet year round, often with some running water. Cold in winter, with frequent frosts (but not or rarely freezing solid), and hot in summer, although the places where the plants sit remain relatively fresh. 

It is one of the largest species, large adult plants may have leaves over 25 cm long!

I hope you like it.
