There are a lot of wild plants out in the steppe:
- wild carnation;
- thyme;
- feather grass (Stipa);
- sweetbrier;
- houseleeks, or liveforever that is also called “hens and chickens” (Sempervivum).
As my friends Nada says, Sempervivum it has recently been re-classified as Dudleya.
The hills are covered with lots of feather grass and other rare plants.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars

    Fascinating about the plants of the Steppe. Is the soil the Chernozem type which is very fertile I think?
