Sternbergia has started to flower today. Both are seed raised from my own collections in spring 2010 at around 1500m asl.

Even if we had had the worst summer for 20 years, with low temperatures, lack of sun and lots of rain, my early clone of Sternbergia sicula performs very well - even in the open rock bed. Here one of them was twin headed.

It's amazing how quickly Sternbergia come up to flower. I'm sure they're faster off the mark than other autumn bulbs. Nothing showing a week ago, and now in flower are:

Sternbergia lutea (acquired as such, but I think it's the plant known in cultivation as 'Angustifolia', a putative hybrid between S. lutea and S. sicula)
Sternbergia sicula 'Arcadian Sun' (to my eye not much different to the one above!) - and in front a bud of S. greuteriana about to open.
Sternbergia colchiciflora

Unfortunately they'll all be over before the Late Bulb Day in Aberdeen.

Sternbergias are also in flower in Austria:

Sternbergia lutea
good Sternbergia lutea type (some stalks with two flowers)
Sternbergia maybe greuteriana (in comperison with a lutea!)
Sternbergia clusiana in bud
Sternbergias from Crete in bud

I have 3 different Sternbergias, all labelled sicula.
1 bought last summer, in flower, labelled grandiflora. No flower this year after splitting up but at least 20 pairs of leaves visible.
Another single bulb has had 3 flowers sequentially, before leafing out, and did the same last year. No vegetative increase but crossed it with a friends S. lutea hopefully.
Other form not flowered yet. All are being pot grown under glass.
