As season gets ahead, different species of orchids flourish, among which: buttercup, anemone, hyacinth, sword-lily, narcissus, nasturtium, crocus (picture), alyssum, lily, mauve, speedwell, thyme, campanula, verbena, oregano, mint, camomile, anise and many others. The naked-lady is the last to flourish before winter. Once the flourishing is over, in autumn it is possible to admire the spectacular and iridescent colours of the hardwood forests, contrasting the wonderful green of larch pine and silver fir. All that is made possible thanks to the siliceous soil and to Mediterranean climate, mainly mild through the influence of the near Ionian and Tyrrhenian seas.
Inside the National Park, the picking up of flowers and the damaging of spontaneous flora is strictly forbidden, except in those areas where the agro-pastoral activities are allowed, always in the observance of local regulations and public spirit.Piante officinali nel Parco Nazionale della Sila
