Wildlife Highlights - Spotted Rock Rose

The spotted rock-rose is Anglesey’s county flower.  It flowers from June to August, and has beautiful blooms, which are pale yellow with a dark crimson spot at the base of each petal.  Its flowers are short-lived, with each bloom lasting for only one day.  Occasionally its petals will drop off even before midday!  It is a locally rare species, and a true coastal cliff-top specialist.  It is present on only a few islands off the west coast of the U.K., and the Lleyn Peninsula in Gwynedd.
