Gymnospermium albertii (Regel) Takht is a spring ephemeral from the harsh climate of Kirgizstan and Uzbekistan, thus it is perfectly hardy and tolerant of snow cover as well as at least -10 °C unprotected in in full flower. The otherwise bright yellow flowers show deep red and even slightly purplish veins on the outside. Photo 1 shows a floral close-up by Arnold Trachtenberg, photos 2-4 document the floral stages from end of December to end of February of a plant cultivated by Martin Bohnet.
