Jim asked,
So here is the question which arises: are there any populations of the

Certainly there are. I saw broad-leaved forms of S. lutea in both Greece 
and Turkey this fall, and they were very obviously seeding populations, 
with individual plants spread over large expanses of rocky ground on grassy 
slopes and in olive groves, as well as among undisturbed scrub.
