The shrubs from our hills:

Its round fruits with a rough surface are edible. Its branches are covered with these fruits which, with maturity, change from green to orange to red.
- The Myrtle tree, small tree 1 to 3 meters in height, is a very common shrub very common in the Massif des Maures. Its fruits are small black edible berries, with a very sticky taste.
- The Rockrose, Mediterranean shrub, is recognised by its narrow leaves, rolled on the edges and viscous. Its flowering, white or pink is spectacular.
- The Parasol pine marks the landscape by its outline. Called « Pine Pine nuts », this tree looks like a gigantic open umbrella.
