This member of the Liliaceae family was
given this name by Joseph
Robert Sealy and William Bertram Turrill in 1955. It is found
on the Greek islands; Kithira and Crete, growing in a well
drained soil with some water and lots of sun. The bulbs grow to
four and a half centimetres, the entire plant can reach 10 to 25
centimetres. The flowers - one or two on each bulb - are bright red.
*) I thought the Liliaceae
family had been split up completely, but I don't seem to find any
other for this plant.
