A rare flower that grows in small populations in very few locations in Greece. This is probably the main reason why it is included in the Red Data Book of Rare and Threatened Plants of Greece (Patra 2009) and is considered a species that is “almost threatened with extinction”.

Photographed in Viotia on February 23, 2016.
