The only plant species growing on these sandy volcanic slopes. When I asked for the name of this species I was very puzzled! I wondered how this plant could be used in the production of the alcoholic drink – but when you see the name in writing you quickly realize it’s nothing to do with the drink 🙂


This plant seemed a bit different. The leaves are distributed in dense and large “clumps” opposed to the evenly distribution on nesiotica, so I’m not certain this is nesiotica.


From a distance the Tiquilia looks almost artificial, or as if clad in frost.
