This is a rain-lily bought as "Lemon Buds" but hard to distinguish from straight Zephyranthes candida

A few more:
1) Rhodophiala bifida pink
2) Biarum davisii ssp marmarisense
3) Narcissus serotinus from Otto or is it N. obsoletus?
4) Colchicum not diampolis (which is a winter/spring flowerer) -but what is it?
5) Habranthus tubispathus soft pink form
cheers

Narcissus obsoletus grown from AGS Seedex 2011 (collected as N. miniatus) or is it N. deficiens as suggested by Rafa?

1) Nerine fothergilla 'Major'
2) Nerine rosea
Both of these have been "sunk" into Nerine sarniensis which I don't agree with! These are both frost hardy in our area while N. sarniensis isn't,
