[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This mountainous bulb grows in SW Asia. It was considered as a separate species (E. libanoticus), but than united with E. spectabilis. It is common in the heights of Mt Hermon. It has a unique storage organ - a corm that is surrounded by scales (like in a bulb) with a fleshy root cluster. In other words "it did not decide" what is it.

Hello Ori,
Your bulb produces a very beautiful cluster of pretty red and white flowers. I really like the vertical framing and the way you allow us to view the terrain in which it grows.. Super sharp and displaying wonderful detail.
If I remember correctly Mt. Herman was partially covered with snow when I visited back in March.
