A tiny hoop-petticoat with pale primrose to almost white flowers, subtly hinted with green, that sit at a slight angle, almost at ground level alongside the two or three narrow prostrate leaves.
The subspecies luteolentus, is a little taller, more upright and the corona is often a slightly darker shade than the petals though the shade is still a very pale yellow. It is more vigorous and thus satisfactory in cultivation.

A super little plant, the emphasis being on the “little” but a perfect little elfin miniature for pan or sink garden. Scarce and seldom seen, the bulbs are tiny and in keeping with the miniature status. Very early, the beginning of February is normal here.
This is a seed propagated stock raised from material originally from the Collado de los Jardines.
