More Sternbergia lutea - this clump came from a friend who was clearing a customer's garden of bulbs and presumed that they were narcissus  ;)

Finally, Sternbergia sicula is starting - this is the original cluster where I planted a few grown from seed from Rannweig Wallis at the end of the 1990s

Fermi, every time I see such happy 'Mediterraneans' in your garden I feel like apologising to mine for the suffering I put them through ;D 8)

Thanks, Yann. I'm glad they like our climate!
I did have the winter flowering S. candida for a few years but one year they didn't reappear  :'( I think because the bed above them was watered during the summer and the water seeped down and rotted them while dormant

Great achievement with the colchiciflora  !
