Bellevalia cyanopoda Wendelbo is an Iranian species with a rather compact habit. Judging different internet picture sources, the flower color seems to be varying in the blue-whitish-pink spectrum. The name "cyanopoda", literally "blue footed", describes the blueish pedicels linking the flowers to the stem. While the plant seems totally hardy in southern Germany for Martin Bohnet, the flowers can take damage from late freezing nights, as the second picture taken after a nightly drop to -4 °C shows.
