Wildflowers in Iran Talk [100]

Wildflowers in Iran
IF YOU HAVE A BOOKING FOR THIS EVENT, WE ARE CURRENTLY TRYING TO HOST THIS EVENT ONLINE.   THE FRIENDS WILL CONTACT YOU TO ADVISE IF WE CAN DO THIS AND IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO STILL PARTICIPATE.    Come and hear an  Illustrated Talk by Geoff Crowhurst about the wonderful wildflowers he encountered in Iran.

Few tourists get to see the wildflowers in Iran, as they are far from the main centres of Tehran, Isfahan and Shiraz, and the window of opportunity is quite small. Wildflowers appear as the snow melts in the mountains, and one needs to know the best places to go, which can involve extensive travel. Our speaker, Geoff Crowhurst, was on an Alpine Garden Society tour led by Harry Jans from the Netherlands.

Getting to see the wildflowers usually required good scanning skills and scrambling up slopes – not for the faint hearted or unfit, but the time and effort was well rewarded. Harry had been to many of the sites some years earlier, but second time round he was looking for the rare endemic Dionysia, plants in the primula family which grow on sheltered rock faces, that are often nearly vertical. There is always new flora to find in crevices, between rocks. The mountains are exciting in spring as the flowers poke their heads above the moist ground. The abundance of colourful flowers will be on display in the slides accompanying Geoff’s talk.
