Neutral Baa On Oct 10, 2001, Baa wrote:

Little, delicate looking, perennial from the Atlas Mountains.

Has light blue-green, broad, lance like, thick leaves with pale veins upto 3 inches long. Bears 1-3, white sometimes flushed pinkish, cup shaped, 5 petalled flowers about 1.5-2 inches across.

Flowers late February-early April.

Like a very sharply drained, rich soil in full sun.

It's a summer dormant plant and hates being wet at this time.
