Moraea aristata looking stunning

It is stunning! I wonder if it is hardy enough to grow here? Maybe not.

Hi Leena,
here they have survived in the ground a drop to -7oC which other South African bulbs in pots did not.
Here is Moraea setifolia which can seed about a bit - I try to collect as much of the seed as I can
cheers

Here it may be -20C without snow in bad winters (though last winter the minimum was less), so I will just have to admire your pictures. :) They look very nice.

Thanks, Leena,
I feel the same about things like Meconopsis I see here but not in my garden :)
The latest to flower is Moraea atropunctata which we got earlier in the year from Ray Mills (Ray's Unusual Plants) in Guildford.
cheers

Me? Painting?  ;D
Not likely, Maggi!
Here's another spotty one Moraea 'Karen Howard' (M. loubseri x M.atropunctata) which we got earlier in the year from Garry Reid

A mystery moraea which has flowered in the old "South African Sand Bed". I wonder if it could be Moraea pritzeliana?

Moraea lurida can be really variable in the wild but the forms in cultivation are less so.
These are two variations in our seed raised bunch - one is yellow and the other cream ::)

Hi Véronique,
