Gagea

Flowers of Crete (Fielding and Turland)suggests that there are 8 yellow species of Gagea on Crete and that they are very difficult (even requiring the bulb to be looked at). They are G. bohemica, chrysantha, commutata, fibrosa, granatellii, peduncularis, reticulata and villosa.

Fielding and Turland

What a book! Certainly no field guide (!), but the pictures are fantastic... a real joy when you return with your photos to go through.
