Maggi,

there'll still be plenty for Ian (the Christie kind) to see when he visits (I think he intends stopping here on the way to NZ) - but this is the "busy" time of the year for flowers!

Here's the best flowering I've had on Moraea macronyx

Moraea macronyx

Only when I was pollinating them I realized that there were 2 types of flowers - the usual one seems to have brown marks on the yellow crest whereas on one plant they are absent! As these were grown from seed I guess it's just variation within the species,

Moraea macronyx - 2 typesMoraea macronyx - no dark marks

Also in flower amongst the pots, was this Mediterranean romulea from the Canary Islands, Romulea hartungii (syn R. grandiscapa)

And from South America, this yellow ipheion, now called Nothoscordum felipponei,

Stunning Moraea, fermi.

Good to hear you are confident on having some flowers left for Ann and Ian on their travels - they are already looking forward to the trip !

Ian will be appearing at the NZAGS Study Day  of course - see details here : www.nzags.com

"......and way too many euphorbias!"

 

Oh dear, I read that as too many euphorias  ....thought you were protesting too much!

Not to self: pay proper attention to reading.  blush

For example, these Romulea sabulosa have been flowering all month!

I love the satin sheen to the petals when the sun hits them,

I grew this little sweetie from AGS Seedex 2008 seed as Muscari "ex Gul" - "Gul" was a selection made by Rannweig Wallis, but I believe it has been re-named 'Gul Delight'

I have something similar Fermi in an unlabeled pot...(I'll use your foliage shot to try and hopefully locate it ....blush)

Here's a nice clump of Corydalis x 'George Baker' originally from seed.

Threw some used potting mix on the surface of a pot of Shortia glacifolia a few months ago and it's rewarded me by at least doubling the number of flowers this season.......
