echium wildpretii ssp trichosiphon The pink viper's buglosses can be seen on Roque de Los Muchachos from May to June. To form its impressive inflorescence, the "tajinaste rosado" needs 3-5 years. By the way, Palmerian tajinaste have a greater genetic diversity than their red relative on Tenerife. Therefore, it is proposed to recognise the Palmerian tajinaste (previously Echium wildpretii ssp. trichosiphon) as a separate species under the name Echium perezii Sprague.

The fertile lava ash in the south of La Palma is very rich in minerals with a high content of phosphorus, potassium and calcium. It releases the water it stores only slowly – thanks to it, one of the best wine-growing areas of the archipelago, the "Subzona Fuencaliente", was created here. Photo: Ines Dietrich
