A WALK INTO THE SUNSET AT THE SHFAYIM BEACH NORTH OF TEL AVIV
Sea Daffodil - Strandlilie - Chavazelet HaHof - Pancratium maritimum, native to the Mediterranean region, growing at the coastal beaches in the sand. The big beautiful white flowers bloom in summer, each one only one day, with a delicate fragrance of exotic lily scent! They are pollinated by the hawk moth - den Taubenschwaenzchen :-).
Beach Evening Primrose - Abendblume - Nachtkerze - Ner HaLeila - Oneothera drummondii - growing on the beach near the water, in warm or hot climate. The big yellow flowers open at sunset, ready to get pollinated by night insects.
