    Taxon info

    Crepis incana is endemic to mountains of Peloponnisos, Sterea Ellas and Evvia, being replaced in Kriti by the similar C. sibthorpiana. It is one the two pink-flowered species of the genus (the other is the annual C. rubra). Both C. incana and C. sibthorpiana grow on rocky limestone outcrops at (1000–)1500–2400 m, flowering rather late (July to September).A
