Nice pictures !
Can I ask you if all the stem flowers have 2 spathes and if this is really 2 spathes or one spathe split in 2 by the pedicel ?
The reason is that I have an old clone (grown for ~20 y) of Acis autumnalis and discovered the var dispathaceus on the forum. Last year, I have a look and found that some of my flowers have 2 spathes (or one splitted in 2) and others only one. This year, none have a splitted spathe ! So, I wonder what is the characteristic of this variety and if it's stable.

With the same kind of idea, I wonder if someone have seen a real difference with the "September snow" cultivar. I've received one supposedly be "september snow" and don't see any differences. I can't say that I'm able to see any difference with the pictures on the web. All the flowers have a diffuse pink at the base of the petal which disappear with age.

Discovered this Acis trichophylla in flower today but can't remember planting one here - or at least I couldn't find a label.
cheers

At least, this is an answer ! But I also know that others have different var/ssp/cultivar of this species. Did they also have no idea about what are the morphological differences ?  ;)

I have one more question : what distinguish var/ssp. oporanthus except that it is from N Africa ? https://www.pacificbulbsociety.org/pbswiki/index.php/AcisOverview]Pacific bulbs society wiki [/url] is not very clear about this exept that pulchellum and oporanthus are no longer considered to be worthy of variety status.

Thank you Gerd, they are still going, but Autumn's first rains have demaged many of them.
I love Acis, such a sweet bulb.

Mine didn't start flowering before January 15th and the last flower just fade away. It was the first time that it bloomed here  :)
