Rhodophiala baffle me as well! It took ages for the original clone I had to get to flowering size but since then they have flowered regularly - except last year! This one is in a bed which gets summer water and I wonder if that is why it is in flower already (the other one is usually in flower in March when the weather has started to cool down)
Fermi de Sousa,
Central Victoria, Australia
Min: -7C, Max: +40C
This is one of the few native Australian bulbs, the Garland Lily, Calostemma purpureum
This clematis came to us as the hybrid 'Golden Tiara'; it has persisted with a little supplementary water over the summers
This variegated Yucca seemed to burst into bloom before I even noticed the spike forming!
Not sure of the specific - I think it was something strange like "Y. gloriosa variegata"
Lycoris elsae which started a few days ago is now in full bloom,
Scrumptious, and very fragrant-looking. Is it?
Lycorus squamigera is one of the first to emerge here, and they only plant I worry about in late frosts. All time record-breaking weather has stimulated them extra early:
Rick Rodich zone 4a. Annual precipitation ~24 inches
near Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA
No scent that I've noticed, Rick. Must check it out later.
This morning this Commelina elegans looked spectacular with a great many flowers open at the same time,
A most peculiar presentation of Rhodophiala bifida! A pic taken a week ago,
Today I saw that the scapes are now an inch or two above the gravel
This week more scapes have emerged with more normal lengths,
Only one flower stem on Lycoris aurea this year
