Ecologie : Grassland; bushland; woodland; often on sandy soils at rocky places; sporadic, but often abundant; clay soil; edges of cultivated fields; 0-2800 m alt.
  Polymorphic species. Some S. African species recorded by, e.g. Jessop, from our area may belong here (due to confusion), perhaps also L. zambesiaca (see this species below).
  Scilla lilacina (Fenzl ex Kunth) Baker from Sudan and Ethiopia is closely related to or perhaps conspecific with L. revoluta. Further studies are needed.
