Autumn bulbs of Lycia
Sunday 20 – Sunday 27 October 2024
We plan to offer a one-week tour in south-west Turkey next year staying in Kalkan, Cirali and Side. There will be visits to Simena, Phaselis and Termessos, for the wild flora as well as for their history. Members should see Colchicum stevenii (shown in the picture), C. boisssieri, C. variegatum, C. sanguicolle, purple-throated Crocus mathewii with white C. cancellatus subsp. lycius, also Sternbergia clusiana and many cyclamen. The leaders will be Chris and Başak Gardner who guided our April 2023 tour in Croatia.
