went on a trip to dalmatia ( coastal croatia) and fould a lot of interesting things for identification. ill sstart with some of the plants.
the plant in the last 3 pics is quite fragrant.
thanks in advance
images 220 and 216 are of Rosemary - Rosmarinus officinalis The flower colour varies enormously.
The other three pics - 943, 519 and 514 - of the fragrant plant, are less easy to id.
I can tell you that from the leaf arrangement they are in the same family as Rosemary - Lamiaceae - but without flowers it is difficult to give a definitive id. My best educated guess would be Winter Savoury - Satureja montana.
Hope that helps somewhat...
thank you for your reply Jen.
however i am certain that the 220 and 216 are not rosemary as rosemary has strong woody branches which grow more or less vertically, this is a much smaller plant growing verry close to the ground, ( sort of like moss) also it has softer scentless leaves unlike rosemary which grows wild in the same are as this.
i think that 220 and 216 might be teucrium montanum but im not 100% sure.
as for the other fragrant plant. it looks a bit like rosemary but it smells completely different.
I have to admit that I did think of Teucrium first, as the back two petals in them do not form a hood, but based on the info I could get from your pic Rosemary seemed possible too (and I don't know T. montanum and my book does not include it...) - so was being over confident and hasty however by declaring it so! Apologies...
I would agree with you on T. montanum, the character of the coloured veination of the upper back petals is very distinctive - and can be made out on some of the flowers in your pics - and the inrolled edges of the leaves also matches well. You may have seen this website already but some good pics for comparison, etc. here.
