A species from the north Mediteranean coast. All the Romulea have a reputation for weediness, and it is probably deserved in some cases, but some of them have spectacular flowers, which is a very adequate recompense.
I have grown a few from seed over the last few years and the chaos and confusion in the genus, punctuated with moments of silky petalled wonder are starting to attract me!

I have seen this form growing as a small alpine in cool dry conditions, but under cover here it has become long and leggy (but still wonderful)!
