   This member of the Liliaceae family was given this name by Otto Stapf in 1934. It is found in low mountain forests from Afghanistan to Nepal, growing in a well drained soil with some water and little to some sun. The bulb can grow to four centimetres in diameter, the entire plant to 45 centimetres in height, 90 centimetres with the flowers, which are from pink over lavander to rosy in colour.

This plant is a wintergrower.

*) I thought the Liliaceae family had been split up completely, but I don't seem to find any other family for this plant.
