The festival will feature music, dance, poetry and literature, but will also include botanic art workshops and a botanic art exhibition, at which Julia will be exhibiting her paintings of endangered Cretan endemics.
A new species of Bellavalia has been discovered on Crete - and named after Flowers of Crete founder and president, Julia Jones.
Bellevalia juliana has been separated from Bellavalia brevipedicellate and B. sitiaca — these two Cretan endemics once considered as one species — from plants examined near Elounda and a second location in eastern Crete.
The Bellavalia genus is closely related to Muscari, grape and tassel hyacinths. Bellevalia juliana flowers in February and March.
Be a part of orchids and other Cretan flowers lovers, participate in the gatherings and festivals. As a strating point, choose one of these nice villas.
