Sea daffodil, Pancratium maritimum, is found on the coast of the Mediterranean, Caspian and Black Sea.

A member of the Amaryllidaceae family, it used to be widespread in Mediterranean, but now quite rare. Protected pockets can be found on the edge of the sandy beaches in Protaras, and isolated plants beside the Protaras-Pernera Coast Path.

For Annie, with love.
