Thank you for your ID. Yes, the seeds had been wild collected a few years ago. Its a lovely little plant.

Opened up yesterday ---Solaria ,(Syn Gethyum ),atropurpureum--first flowering from seed sown Jan 2008.

Seems okay outside all year round in this climate.

Interestingly from the pics i have seen i would have expected the flowers to have been on longish stems --maybe that may happen in due course .

Not a large bloom however i love the chocolate  :P colour --the smell is another thing  ;D  wet musky dog !......

Cheers Dave.

That's a special plant, Dave! I wouldn't say it leaps to the eye but it has a modest kind of charm! I like it ;)

beautiful Dave

I bought a few bulbs last year
they are dormant now
no idea when they flower
but calculating it must be somewhere in March
or with bad luck the year after
