Over 10 Bellevalia species have been recorded in Jordan. They are generally characterized by fleshy, curling, basal leaves; leafless stem; and a raceme of white or pale-violet, tubular flowers made up of six fused petals and violet anthers. Flowers turn brown as they age. Distinguished from grape hyacinths by partly-fused petals and longer lobes.
Different species occur in habitats ranging from the highlands, including Amman, to arid regions such as Shobak and Ma’an.
Winter or spring.
