Fritillaria cf. elwesii Boiss., 1884

Kemer, ANTALYA ● Turkey

About the photo: I found this beautiful Fritillaria in a pine forest. It is close to Fritillaria elwesii but with lighter color – purplish-red in place of purplish-brown. It was the last flower of the site and a few minutes later, all petals were down. So, I’m not sure of the ID.

Description: It grows up to 40 cm tall. The leaves are narrow greyish. It carry up to three narrow purplish-brown bells, striped longitudinally with clear yellow-green bands.

Biology: Flowering from March to April.

Habitat: scrub on limestone (Styrax, Quercus coccifera), pine woodlands, up to 900 m.

Distribution: Turkey (Southern Anatolia), Lebanon, Syria. The holotype was collected in Turkey (Içel, Findikpinar, above Mersin, 1200 m).
