Sisyrinchium humile in the Alpine House:

Hello Rudi

Sisyrinchium humile is now flowering in my garden too. However, it is in my rock garden all year round without any protection. So it seems to be immune to heat and winter wetness (?)... at least the picture doesn't show anything contrary...😉

...the same applies to Sisyrinchium laetum, by the way. No protection...only loving care...😂

Thomas, thank you for your pictures and your report. It is good to know about the hardiness of the
2 Sisyrinchium species and I will try it in my garden.

Dave's talk and photos were excellent.  Look out for the recording if Fermi can make it available.
