Winter Flowers

The Israel Postal Service has issued three new stamps that have postage values of 1.80s, 2.10s and 2.70s named "Winter Flowers" on the 10th of February 2015. These new stamps depict three different species of flowers. They are the Coast False-Chamomile, Dyers Alkanet, and the Crown Anemone. Each of the flowers is listed below with a brief explanation of each.

  • Coast False-Chamomile (1.80) - is an annual plant that forms spectacular blooming carpets on the coastal sand fields as early as January. It belongs to the Daisy family and grows only in the coastal plains of Israel and Southern Lebanon. No where else in the world has it been found to grow.
  • Dyers Alkanet (2.10) - it grows all year round but only blooms bright blue flowers in winter and early spring.
  • Crown Anemone (2.70) - this is a very popular wild flower in Israel. It blooms in a variety of colors from early winter through the end of spring. The red variety of the Crown Anemone grows through most of the country, while the other color types grow mainly in the north.

"Winter Flowers" stamps can be purchased in Sheets of 15, Tab Block of 4, and Plate number Block of 4. They will be printed by Carter Security Printing, France using the offset 4 color printing process.
