The sun filled days we have been experiencing have brought out the flowers on Helianthemum nummularium ssp. tomentosum to perfection. This subspecies is native to Italy, collected on the west coast of Sicily. The mat forming habitat is ideal for colonising the concrete pad it is growing over. Here the plant absorbs retained heat from the sun to the benefit of a profusion of single golden yellow flowers awash over the evergreen foliage.
