A little premature but ...
« on: August 27, 2021, 04:57:54 PM »
Can anyone give me a clue as to what this will be?
Currently around 3cm tall and a struggle to get it all in focus at once!
More pics in due couse when (if) it opens.

I would be thinking along the lines of Scilla autumnalis - although the leaves are perhaps not quite right for that? Autumn scilla would be my starting point for a google search.

Well spotted Carolyn - though it seems this Cretan version is now called Prospero autumnale! See latest pics.
