Hi Ashley
For clarity, it's definitely not Nothoscordum bivalve.  It is certainly similar to plants I have seen at AGS shows exhibited as Tristagma bivalve.  Bob and Rannveig Wallis grow material like this under that name.  But these are not the same plant which Osmani Baullosa posted as Tristagma bivalve on the PBS (Pacific Bulb Society) website.  The plant on the PBS most like the one I grow is labelled Tristagma sp. by Osmani.  He describes it as "an alpine species from Chile different from T. bivalve. It has scentless flowers that are shaped like a narrow cup facing up.".  For now, I am leaving the label as T. sessile and ignoring the suggestion that this is synonymous with I. sessile.

Note  from Panyoti Kelaidis in Denver : " Campanula trogerae from Turkey, introduced to cultivation by Jim Archibald 25 years ago: I believe I was one of the first to bloom and get good quantities of seed in cultivation: thrilled to still have it going in my garden!"

In a video of  his  personal garden in Denver, Colorado, Panayoti Kelaidis mentions  his  fondness for  Origanum plants- and  picks  out  one that he  has  grown for  around  20 years, which was collected  in Southern Turkey by  his  friend,  Jim Archibald - it has   lovely  lime green bracts  and the  cute  little pale  violet  coloured flowers

Origanum rotundifolium is also one of my favorite summer plants.
Insects, especially bumble bees love it.

These from Steve Garvie :


680323-1

"WEE DIDDY DANFORDIAE!
-This is also Iris danfordiae (JJA585.900). It is from seed initially collected by the Archibalds (JJA 17968). Iris danfordiae has a strange disjunct distribution in Turkey (its a Turkish endemic). It is found in an area centered around the Eastern Taurus Mountains and then again over a much wider area well to the north and east (around Ordu, Amasya, Sivas, Gmşhane, and Erzincan).

The BATM-357 collection is from this latter area but this tiny wee danfordiae was collected at 1800m south-west of the iftehan to Maden road in Niğde Province (Eastern Taurus). This form is very much smaller than typical danfordiae and flowers from small bulbs. It also seems to clump up a bit better than typical danfordiae. The last two images show the JJA form  compared to the BATM-357 collection.

Only had it a year. Got it from a friend who is a much better Plantsman than me. I think he got it as seed from the Archibalds. Early days but it looks like it might bulk up and seems to flower more reliably than other forms."

The Bomarea and Calochortus are fabulous plants...

With grateful thanks to Maggi for this information after I put this photo of Cynara hystrix onto Facebook. (Hope our plants might set seed this summer).

Perhaps this, Tim? 372.100 : CYNARA HYSTRIX Morocco, Middle Atlas Mts., above Ifrane. 1700m. Open, stony areas on limestone. (Maintained from seed we collected in 1962, this remains little-known in cultivation as it so seldom sets enough seed for propagation. Desired by almost all who see it, this is one of the most striking of thistle-like plants with 50cm. stems of large heads of royal-blue flowers, surrounded by lilac-pink phyllaries, elongated into stiff, curved spines. In nature, the deeply cut foliage vanishes before it flowers in summer. No trouble & seems to live forever (without increasing much vegetatively) in a really hot, sunny, dry site.) - from the Archibald Archive- masterseedlist page 54 on the SRGC website.

 Tim says this plant  now seems to have changed name to C. baetica subsp. maroccana Wiklund 1992

From Kurt Vickery today :

Cynara hystrix Syn C. baetica var moroccana JJA 372 100. Introduced under the latter name is this beautiful modestly proportioned 'Cardoon' . For me one of Jim's finest dicot introductions from the 1960's . I lost it after moving house but my excellent plantsman friend Mike Tucker expertly maintained it for all these years and gave me the seed from which this and many other plants have been raised . perfectly hardy in very well drained soil. The name Hystrix is the latin handle for Porcupine species ..."




Kurt hopes  to have this available in his next seed list  8)   kvickery67@btinternet.com

And another plant from Kurt -
