Wild flowers. Mallorca’s fields and woodlands come to life in the spring and summer. The vegetation is typically Mediterranean, and we find many endemic species, including a great number of small orchids.
The rosemary is one of the more well known Mediterranean plants, thanks to its culinary and medicinal uses. This shrub is very abundant from sea level to mountains, in dry, sunny areas on calcareous soils, is woody, perennial and can reach 2 meters.

Characteristics: The Hypericum balearicum is one of the emblematic plants of the Balearic Islands. A beautiful endemic shrub that is relatively common to the Serra de Tramuntana, and less common in the other isles.
The white rock rose has pink flowers, but the leaves are light green. It can only be mistaken for Cistus incanus, which in the Balearics lives exclusively in Menorca, however the latter has dark green leaves with a petiole; all the other rock roses have white flowers.
