This South American ipheion has had a few name changes!

First, I bought it as Ipheion hirtellum but was told it was actually Ipheion sellowianum which is now considered to be Nothoscordum felipponei and by some to be Tristagma sellowianum (Kunth) Traub!

Ipheion sellowianum syn Tristagma sellowianum (Kunth) TraubIpheion sellowianum syn Tristagma sellowianum (Kunth) Traub

Tulip Season is starting!

Tulipa saxatilis Bakeri group 'Lilac Wonder' does well in our rock garden without "running" too much ( as opposed to the type species)

Lovely, Fermi.  Our summer seems to be ending early, with rain and cool temperatures.  Spring is even farther away for us!
