Opened up yesterday ---Solaria ,(Syn Gethyum ),atropurpureum--first flowering from seed sown Jan 2008.

Seems okay outside all year round in this climate.

Interestingly from the pics i have seen i would have expected the flowers to have been on longish stems --maybe that may happen in due course .

Not a large bloom however i love the chocolate  :P colour --the smell is another thing  ;D  wet musky dog !......

Cheers Dave.

That's a special plant, Dave! I wouldn't say it leaps to the eye but it has a modest kind of charm! I like it ;)
