It's not the most robust of plants and the pic isn't the greatest but I like this Bloomeria crocea - maybe it would benefit from less competition from the Califronia Poppies and Alliums?
Fermi de Sousa,
Central Victoria, Australia
Min: -7C, Max: +40C
We visited our friend Cathy this week and she had this Triteleia laxa in flower which I presume is the "original" T.laxa 'Queen Fabiola' which is a lot darker than the one sold under that name in the trade in Australia.
There are more Trits available and other American bulbs in two catalogues we've just received (sorry Australia only!) - Marcus Harvey's Hillview Rare Plants (hillviewrareplants.com.au) and Lambley Nursery (lambley.com.au)
PS I've just corrected the address for Marcus' list!
Brodiaea terrestris is starting to flower again,
One of the Dichelostemmas
A new one in our garden is Triteleia 'Starlight' - I'm not sure if the stems are meant to be so short,
Seems Victoria, Australia is a better place for growing North American bulbs than Norway!
Rogaland, Norway - with cool, often rainy summers (29C max) and mild, often rainy winters (180 cm/year)!
This little Brodiaea or triteleia was a stray in another pot and this year has produced a montrous flower!
This Dichelostemma came to us as D. pulchellum
Triteleia 'Starlight' is making a better show now
I think this was raised from NARGS Seedex seed as Dichelostemma multiflorum or D. capitatum - can't find the label!
Brodiaea terrestris in full flower now - two shades in this potful,
Triteleia ixioides is lovely but does turn up where it shouldn't - like in this pot of seedlings raised as Bloomeria!
