Moraea 2022
« on: February 23, 2022, 05:38:21 AM »
Moraea fugax (blue). This is a big flower for a tiny plant. I bought it as a bulb from Telos in USA.

Moraea trisucspidata - although the flowers are tiny compared to size in book descriptions. It’s my index finger on the second pic for scale.

Moraea gigandra - this has the biggest flowers. There are yellow and white ones in the wild

A classic Moraea tulbaghensis - slight cup shape. Makes me feel
Like it’s not opening properly

Moraea tulbaghensis (this type used to be neopavonia-connecting it to tigridias which is nice)

these plants are wonderful.
I try to sow them, but I have a lot of trouble keeping them alive.
How do you grow them?

Veronique - very dry in early summer (in doors), in the garden in late summer/early autumn till the first frosts (enjoying the cool Scottish nights and plenty of rain), then in doors under LED lights till they go dormant
