Because of the flowers blooming towards the ground this delicate and beautiful flower, also known as “Crying Bride” or “The Flower of Sorrow”, is an endemic bulbous plant native to the Eastern Anatolia region. It grows naturally in the forest area and at the end of April, with the melting of the snow, it blossoms with 5-6 flowers in shades of orange and adds color to the natural beauty of Bingöl.
