Certainly, these provinces are heaven for Primula and Androsace, where we have seen more than 35 different species.
In the photos, Fields of P. sikkemensis [yellow], P, secundiflora [dark color] and Iris bulleyana.

Two forms of Paris polyphylla,
unfortunately this species is becoming rare because of being collected massively.

Fritillaria cirrhosa is a variable plant in size and color but always grow in a bush supporting it self with the tips of its leaf.
Lloydia delavayi [now Gagea] is an impressive plant, the clump in the photo measured 25 cm in height.

Oron, the Lloydia delavayi is a particularly fine looking plant :o :o  In FOC it is still listed as L. delavayi.  Where is it listed as a Gagea that trumps the FOC description?

Mark,
An ongoing and largest research everdone on the Gagea/Lloydia led by Prof. Levichev suggests after various DNA analysis that Gagea and Lylodia are one Genus.
The article was published by Oxford University press in May 2009.
By the way i have sent to this research some material from Israel, a few months ago i was told that  280 different species [from Europe and Asia] have been identified so far.

Some of the FOC books haven't been updated for the last 10 years or more.

Hi Miriam,
Well we were lucky, it seems that the only two 'dry' provinces where Yunnan and most parts of Sichuan, still we had a few rainy or cloudy days, you can tell it by the dark photos...
