Echium russicum has survived the winter! (Action C5)
All thirty Echium russicum individuals that were planted in "Zachodniowołyńska Dolina Bugu" Natura 2000 site have survived the winter. The planting took place in October 2010 thanks to the support of Regional Directorate for Environmental Protection in Lublin and the Marie Skłodowska-Curie University's Botanical Garden. Just before the task, the site was mowed and raked as mentioned in last year's news section. We keep our fingers crossed for the successful blossoming of Echium russicum this summer!
