Aristolochia nardiana I.M.Turner
perennial herb < 0,4 m, tuberous, irregularly elongated taproot
3-4 cm, odour barely noticeable
thick-shelled, compressed triangular, large elaiosome,
stratification 1-3 years
This very attractive small species from southern Greece is hard to distinguish from A. pallida (syn. A. lutea) by its flowers and general appearance.
In fact, many specimens show intermediate features between A. pallida and A. lutea morphs so hybridization might play a role in this taxon, too.
The tuberous underground stem represents the only reliable characteristic which is very elongated in this species in contrast to globose or ovoid tubers of A. pallida and A. lutea morphs.
