Wim, do you grow R kochii outside in the ground or in pots? I am considering trying some in my garden ;)

Trond,

it grows outside in the ground. In a sunny place, the soil gets rather dry in summer (since we get a lot of rain in summer too, the soil never gets bonedry, though).

While on the subject of lesser Hyacinthella and the like, I have this very fragrant  Hyacinthoides aristides in bloom right now ( a first for me). Not sure of the name, perhaps it is a Scilla, but this what it was sold as. I wish I bought more bulbs, but even this pan of 3 bulbs is very fragrant, and long lasting - this pot has been in bloom for over a month.

Nice, Mattus!

I love the little Scillas and their relatives, but haven't come across that one before.

Cheers.

I have this plant with the same name.

Both very nice, Luc.  I must check and see whether the latter still exists in my collection.  I don't think I've seen it in a couple of years. :rolleyes:  Excellent pics.

Cheers.

Nice, Luc. Now I think I could easily collect this genus!
