Taxon info

Lithodora zahnii was named after H. Zahn, who collected plants for Heldreich in Taigetos and the Kalamata area c. 1896–1899. It is a bushy shrublet confined to limestone cliffs in ravines at low altitude on the W side of the Mani Peninsula (S Peloponnisos). A closely related species, L. rosmarinifolia, occurs in Sicily and S Italy. Lithodora zahnii grows well in blocks of calcareous tufa under glass in the Göteborg Botanical Garden, where the photo was taken.A
