Desert in the Summer

04.08.2015

As the spring is approaching, the waving meadows of Stipa are giving way to summer vegetation. Within the seemingly dry grassland several species of protected plants bloom, often in huge numbers.

In the beginning of July the Linum tenuifolium starts to blossom in the well preserved steppes. Unlike the taller Linum austriacum (Asian flax), which blooms in the spring and has blue flowers, the Linum tenuifolium grows lower and is a fragile plant with white flowers. These magnificent flowers flower for a day or two, then wither away. In contrast the white flowered late carnation (Dianthus serotinus) turns the sandy grasslands into white in the beginning and middle of July. Their colonies big and small are visible from afar. Rare species of the sandy grasslands around the city of Győr are the Peucedanum arenarium and the Onosma arenarium. The first one is known only from two or three location and their tall groups can be seen from great distances. Onosma arenarium is designated as one of the target species of the Hungarian Little Plain Life+ project, and they are yellow during their flowering. As the result of the project, the size of the population is stabilized at 80-100 pieces. Significant population of this plants grow near the Szitás-hill near Bácsa.

The blood red flowers of ball-head onion (Allium sphaerocephalon) appears in the middle of July. They can still be found in many places around Győr.

Let’s protect and shelter our environment! Let’s not forget that we are speaking about two Hungarian protected species that have an estimated monetary worth of 10,000 and 5,000 HUF respectively.
