A new cultivar for us of T. laxa 'Silver Queen' - just starting to come into bloom,
Fermi de Sousa,
Central Victoria, Australia
Min: -7C, Max: +40C
Small heartache seeing Triteleia ixioides, I grew it for about 6 years, in two named formed, sorry that is no longer present in my garden :-(
One that is still with me, a rather small yellow-flowered one, is T. lemmoniae. Photos from 2010, but it pretty much looks the same every year. It barely increases for me, but I do have some younger seedling plants coming along, from scratching in seed near the mother plants. I like how the flowers get tinged brown when they start going over.
Massachusetts, USA, near the New Hampshire border USDA Zone 5

that's a lovely Trite!
This is Triteleia bridgesii from NARGS Seedex seed
Here's Triteleia laxa 'Silver Queen' in full bloom
Triteleia laxa 'Allure'
Some more Trites!
This is another of the selections available from David Glenn at Lambley Nursery (lambley.com.au) which he imported from Holland, Triteleia (?laxa) 'WWW'
And this is a single Triteleia laxa which may've been a stray corm or possibily a seedling from the main clump (I posted a pic in the "garden walks" Thread) and has come up opposite the mound where the others are growing,
This range of colorful "bulbs" this late in the year is very inspiring - Will has already decided that we'll be planting a lot more of them next year! The "firecrackers" are still providing a brilliant red even though most of the florets have turned upwards - presumably indicating that seed is set?
The latest to add to the list is Brodiaea californica
Brodiaea californica is making more of an impression as it goes!
Another new one for us is Triteleia laxa Royal Blue - just one flower open so far - in all its double glory!
All I can say Fermi, Trits & Brods must really love Australia! That clump of Brodiaea californica is glorious.
I have to admit that it's been building up over 10 years! Notwithstanding some removals to establish another colony in another bed (the first pic I posted) it hasn't really been disturbed in that time. I'm really getting keen on these American bulbs because they extend the bulb season into summer but it does mean they can't be grown under the deciduous trees like the earlier flowering tulips and daffs as they'll be shaded out. This clump is in full sun in the middle of a gentle north slope (that's like a south slope for you guys!) of our "CM" (Central Mound) in the main rock garden,
Not the best pic, I thought I'd post it anyway and hope for a better one as more flowers open; this is Bloomeria crocea,
