[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Z. rosea are perennial herbaceous monocots. They are small plants, reaching only 15 to 20 cm (5.9 to 7.9 in) in height.[3] They bear five to six narrow and flattened dark green linear leaves, about 3 to 4 mm (0.12 to 0.16 in) wide, from spherical tunicate bulbs around 1.5 to 2.5 centimetres (0.59 to 0.98 in) in diameter.[4][5][6]

The single funnel-shaped flowers are borne erect or slightly inclined on scapes around 10 to 15 cm (3.9 to 5.9 in) long. The spathes are around 2 to 2.8 cm (0.79 to 1.1 in) long and slightly divided only at the tip.[7] The fragrant six-petaled flowers are around 2.5 cm (0.98 in) in diameter and 3 to 3.5 cm (1.2 to 1.4 in) in length. The perianth is bright pink with a green central perianth tube that is less than 5 mm (0.20 in) long.[5][8][9] The six stamens are of different lengths – one of 11 mm (0.43 in), one of 16 mm (0.63 in), and four between 12 to 13 mm (0.47 to 0.51 in).[5] They are shorter than the style and inserted at the mouth of the perianth.[7] The anthers are 3 to 6 mm (0.12 to 0.24 in) long.[10]

The flowers develop into capsules that are divided deeply into three lobes.[11] The seeds are shiny black and flattened.[4]

Looks like a Romulea species.

Nice capture!


Ciao Angelo, il fiore č bello, e come dice Shakespheare una rosa anche con un altro nome non avrebe lo stesso profumo?
Ottima nitidezza, splendida luce e bei colori naturali, bravo, ciao silvio

Hello Angelo!
Welcome to TN!
This flower was ID by our collegue Ori ( fragman)as Zephyranthes.You can see more about it in Google. I took a pic from this flower some time ago and you can see it in my gallery.You tell us that it is a "fiore di montagna", but I donīt think so,because the mine was found in the grass from my garden...and I donīt live in the montains...Never mind! You did a good job! Nice natural colors and excellent sharpness! Well done!
