Cap de Formentor, Mallorca

Mallorca’s northeastern-most Cap de Formentor is a botanist’s paradise. Windswept and bleak it may be, this jagged peninsula is home to a spectacular array of rarities, some are even found nowhere else. One of the more curious species is the autumn-flowering Arum pictum which grows beneath pine trees, and which lures small flies to pollinate its flowers which produce the smell of cow dung.
