Endemic species to be discovered
Many wild flowers can be observed when walking in Corsica. They border paths, flower dunes, brighten prairies or grow in the
undergrowth away from the light.
Some species of flower have developed in a manner specific to the island, thus creating endemic
varieties that can't be found anywhere else: crocus (crocus corsicus, Corsican saffron), orchids
(Conrad's orchid, serapias nurrica...), colchicum, violet, romulea, aconite, garlic, aquilegia, daisy, cyclamen,
carnation, digitalis, everlasting, hypericum, forget-me-not, mint, nepita, ranunculus, ... and pinguicula corsica, a small,
endemic, carnivorous plant with beautiful purple flowers that can be found in the "pozzines".
