The Windflower is a native of the eastern Mediterranean region from Greece to Lebanon, growing in rocky areas and in scrub.  The long-lasting flowers spread their petals wide open when the sun comes out, forming a blanket of color.  This delightful species was first introduced into gardens c. 1700 and was a favorite of the early 20th-century garden writer Elizabeth Lawrence.
