Thank's Maggy, very interesting.
And here is the very very first flower of Iris mariae for this season in nature.
It's not the right post to put it here but I added field of Anemone coronaria as they are neighbours

Anemone coronaria is just amazing. I can see that even Solomon in all his glory didn't come up to scratch. ;D

Hi Fred,

Beautiful Iris atropurpurea and Iris mariae in nature.
Where did you take the pic of the Anemone coronaria meadow? Is it in a (cultivated) garden "somewhere north" or in the wild "somewhere south"?
What about the "other neighbour" Cyclamen persicum? I am sure our Israeli forum members have images of it (sorry if I am mixing the subjects of the forums...but plant associations are often more exciting and interesting that the single species!).

Hi Matt,

it was somewhere in the south  ;D, wild and not cultivated, as some other places. There was also one pure white form but no Cyclamen persicum here. Many many more in the north.

Only joking Jan  ;). I can never tire of seeing beautiful plants, beautifully grown, by ( if you don't mind my saying ) an obvious expert in growing these Genera.  :) One thing with growing plants, they wont be told what to do, we have to learn their language and accommodate their needs. I'm learning ;D ;D

I have had a plant which is supposed to be ewbankiana for ten years- no flowers, ever.  :-[
