A vigorous yellow flowered species, and one parent of the hybrid E.x perralchicum. Differs from E.pinnatum colchicum in only having three leaflets. The small red spurs
to the petals point outwards from the flower, rather than lying flat against the sepals (the difference is slight). Not surprisingly, there is a lot of confusion, and I am not going
to pretend that I have it clear in my mind.
I grow two clones from different sources, they may both be wrong!
Collected originally in Algeria in 1861.
