Oxalis obtusa 'Peaches & Cream'
A mix of Galanthus elwesii seedlings

Maggi,
the "stippling" on the inside of the petals is more of a concern :'(
Here are a few more in our garden
1) Massonia citrina (thanks, Paul & Colin)
2) Moraea polystachya
3) Cyclamen persicum
4) Iris 'Harmony'
5) Massonia pustulata
cheers

I was  so busy  admiring the  outers  I didn't  spot  that - I see  what you  mean - looks  like  virus.

Errghh.. virus. don't talk to me about virus. I'm seeing a bit of it around this year, and yes I am talking about the plant ones! A couple of Galanthus have it, especially my Primrose Warburg, which had it from the start, but looks horrible this year. From my reading most people just live with virused Galanthus and it doesn't seem to spread... ?
