Synonyms[3]

Gagea minima is a Eurasian species of plants in the lily family.[3][4][5][6][7][8][9]

Its native range is quite large, as it is found in much of south-central, southeastern, central and northern Europe (Italy, Germany, Scandinavia, and from there eastwards into European Russia), with additional populations in the Caucasus region.[3][1][10]

Gagea minima is a bulb-forming perennial up to 20 cm tall. Flowers are bright lemon yellow, sometimes green on the underside of the tepals.[10]
