Gagea bohemica is the botanical name of the plant that is more commonly
known as the Early Star-of-Bethlehem or Radnor Lily.  It is a
representative of the genus Gagea and belongs to the family Liliaceae.
It can be met mostly in the Mediterranean region and central Europe but

or April.



This flowering plant is capable to attain the height from 2 to 6 cm and
usually has the one pair of twisting, basal leaves in the shape of
thread. They bear a couple of lance-like leaves located beneath the
blossoms. There are up to 4 6-petal blooms on every plant. They come in
yellow and are 0,5 cm across.
