Hi Judy,

the Sternbergia lutea grows in a variety of soils here, from red clay which is rather neutral, to alkaline loam, so I don't think ph would be an issue.Soils are stony, although bulbs are deeply embedded and this species, unlike the Cyclamen hederifolium which share the same habitat, grows only in open areas, that is, never or rarely under shrubs and in this case plants are weak and flower poorly.

I have also added a new page with three photos, but for some reasons (this board is still too complicated for me, sorry !) it seems to dont' work :-(
