White Αsphodel
Phrygana diorama

Photo of the tuberoid roots of the White asphodel, Asphodelus ramosus subsp. ramosus. This is the most common asphodel of Greece and grows in woodland, phrygana and soil-filled hollows. It has finger-like root tubers that allow the plant to resist the Mediterranean drought.
