It was not so easy to identificate this flower. First I thought it was the so called Field Gladiolus but I was wrong.
These flowers are among the most common field flowers in Gozo. Probably after the Cape Sorrel and the Crown Daisy.
Even the english name of the color it’s not so immediate: it should be tyrian purple. But to be fair I’m not sure.
Sulla, which is also the italian name (maltese: Silla), flowers carpet entire fields like their yellow colleagues. It’s a perennial herb native to Malta, Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, southern Italy.
