This is a delicate, very beautiful desert annual. it is common in the Dead Sea area. You can see the sterile radial flowers that are advertizing the whole flowering head and the fertile inner ones. In the fertile flowers you can see how the forked purple style is pushing out the white pollen like toothpaste.
