Particular characteristic of the plants is that the flowers form impressively large inflorescences which have the shape of a bowl called 'cyathion', from the ancient Greek word for the cup. The flowers appear at the end of winter and last almost the entire spring.
It grows in slopes and rocky soils, uncultivated fields as well as areas with maki type of vegetation (see pic.6). It prefers sunny places and can withstand seaside areas. It is a common plant of Greek flora, characteristic of almost all of the eastern Mediterranean and its vegetation.
