Peter, this is certainly a success, this group of bulbs are exceedingly rare and almost nothing is known about them from seed.

Thanks Poul. well done with the Bessera.
I think it has a wide distribution but cant remember exactly, and a strange climate too. Snails ate mine this year  :(

At our last Rock Garden Meeting at Ferny Creek Hort Society, another member, Andrew, brought a huge pot of Conanthera trimaculata which he'd grown from seed 15 years ago. It is possibly hybridised with C. campanulata

Thank you all  :D

I did nothing special ....same treatment as my other Ipheion,Nothoscordum and Tristagma ( in summer dry ...watering after September )
I have Iph. sessile from two different sources ...but it seems it is all the same clone ...until now never seeds  :-\

Good news from my Noth. hirtellum - I have it now managed to get plants from tree different sources - they flowers in same time and it seems the pollination was succsessfull  ;D

Fermi, thanks for showing this superb Conanthera trimaculata! This genus belongs to my favourites. Even if I remember the flower of the species more open, I think it is the straight species as a pot of Hybrids should vary widly - have seen a lot of Conantherahybrids in nature, but cannot remember to have seen any of the two mentioned species as I think I have not seen both species in the same locations. I remember C. trimaculata + C. bifolia (+ hybrids), C. trimaculata + C. bifolia + C. parvula (+hybrids) and C. campanulata + C. bifolia (did not find hybrids, flowering time hardly overlaps)
