Colchicum bivonae in habitat

I have added a number of photos in habitat of Colchicum bivonae in Basilicata - Southern Italy, to show the quite large variability of this species. There are several forms, with round tepals or pointed, dark or pale, more or lesse tesselated, the showiest being the cup-shaped ones. The typical habitat spreads from open pastures to sparse oak woodlands, at an average quote of 400-600m (1200-1800 ft). Indeed the material in cultvation probably doesn't cover such a range, being all more or less clones of few original samples.
