Is this colchicum pusillum?
It has been waiting to be identified by me since the 15th of October 2014.
It was growing in a field between Tripolis and Sparta in the Peloponnese.

Most of my plants are succulents which need little care

Oron,
Many thanks for the identification.
I see that I had already posted a photo of this flower.
