This is a perennial wild plant that grows from a bulb with an erect stem and linear smooth leaves which appear after flowering. The flowers are tiny, 1 cm at most, either pink, blue or violet, with black anthers. These enchanting little flowers can be found in rocky locations and on mountain-sides.
