These Crossyne flava took ten years from seed to start flowering (probably because they were kept in a pot for half that time) but since then they flower regularly,
Amaryllis belladonna is another regular late summer/early autumn flower in our area (and most of southern Australia!)
These are some seedlings which show some variation in shading
This is a deep pink, almost cerise variety which was apparently raised in this area of central Victoria
No flowers yet on any of the white forms

Nerine filifolia masoniorum in flower in a pot - it needs summer water to flower so early
Those anthers are huge!
They really add to the beauty that the flowers already have. Too bad the foliage is so.... blah. LOL

Another autumn blooming South African geophyte, Moraea polystachya, opened its first flower of the season today,
Nerine rosea is a favorite as it survives our frosts very well,
Now in Full flower!
More nerines coming into flower:
Nerine fothergilla 'Major' (now subsumed into N. sarniensis, but is a little more frost resistant in our garden)
Nerine 'Ariel' is an old hybrid which I got about 30 years ago and is fairly reliable in flowering most years
You need sunglasses to view that nerine, Fermi!

Some autumn flowering South African oxalis in our garden now:
Oxalis polyphylla v. heptaphylla
Oxalis flava (mauve form)
Oxalis hirta.(salmon form)
Another Oxalis grown more for its foliage than flowers, is Oxalis palmifrons,
In our rock garden it does manage to flower each autumn, but it spreads too easily by stolons and needs to be confined!
