Garrigues

Garrigue or phrygana is a type of low, soft-leaved scrubland ecoregion and plant community in the Mediterranean forests, woodlands, and scrub biome. It is found on limestone soils around the Mediterranean Basin, generally near the seacoast, where the climate is ameliorated, but where annual summer drought conditions obtain. (See Mediterranean climate.) The term has also found its way into haute cuisine, suggestive of the resinous flavours of a garrigue shrubland.
