Paul Tyerman a *crit :
> Actually, while we're discussing Sternbergia..... does anyone know what the differences actually are between S. lutea and S. sicula?  The discussion on lutea reminded me that I'd often wondered.  I've checked reference books, but i really can't get a clear picture of what differences there are.

Dear Paul,
 I grow the 3 species in question here. The difference is mainly in the leafwidth:
S lutea: 10mm, S lutea aungustifolia: 5mm    S sicula: 2-3 mm
The flowers and the time of flowering and the bulbs are virtually the same.
Kind regards
