Ebenus cretica L., an attractive endemic plant of Crete with potential for floricultural use



HortScience 31(5): 769-774



E. cretica (Leguminosae is a herbaceous, perennial evergreen subshrub up to 60 cm tall. The flowers are vivid pink or porphyry (purple) and form thick racemes that develop from axillary buds, while the shoot tips remain vegetative. The racemes are cylindrical and range in length from 5 to 20 cm. Flower buds are covered in silvery down and are attractive even before opening.
