Here is a picture of my N. b. obesus, in a pot. But while the one Cris photographed is early, mine is among the last to flower at the end of spring. It's just finished this last week (May, if I lived in the Northern Hemisphere).

Nice clump Lesley - as to the flowering season, I think Cris photographed hers last spring in Portugal, I believe March - out here (some 1500 km North of Portugal) it's April before they flower in the garden.

Gerd, tanks for explanation. I've learned a bit more ;)

Lesley, they are so nice in that pot, with so many flowers. I've some in the ground, I hope they flower this year.

Marc, the pics were taken in May in their habitat. The're start now puting their leaves outside. But i've seen them just near Lisbon, a 50Km north, +/- 700 m high.

I let you a pic of one of mines, in a pot last year.

Thanks Luc, for the note. I'd missed that Cris's pics were in March, last year. I need to open my eyes more ;)
