Michael, I love all those moraeas!
David, did you grow that hesperantha from seed? How long did it take?
Fermi de Sousa,
Central Victoria, Australia
Min: -7C, Max: +40C
I did indeed Fermi. Seed was sown in January 2008 and my records show first flowers in July 2009.
in Devon, UK Zone 9b
With the three marked, lower petals of that Babiana, it makes one think of the Gladiolus genus.
Very nice, both of them.
Rick Rodich zone 4a. Annual precipitation ~24 inches
near Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA
it does have the look of a gladdie at the initial flowering stage.
Here it is a week later
Here is a little gladdie which is quite common in Melbourne but I've only just got it back here in the country,
We've had a clump of the Ixia viridiflora hybrid known as "Teal Blue" or "Amethystina" for quite awhile in our Rock garden
and now some of the self-sown seedlings are showing a bit of variation in color,
Wow, now those are some long floral tubes! Like a crocus!
But I think more like F. laxa 'Joan Evans'. Alba seems to be pure white, but I'm only a novice here.
Novice or not, I think you/re right, Rick
Galtonia regalis now in bloom (I believe some taxonomists have lumped them in with Ornithogalum!)
