Another beautiful plant Alessandro.  I'll have to wait a year or two before my seedlings get to that stage.

Alessandro, could you add your location to your profile so we know where you are.  Lovely tecophilaea by the way.  Mine are just poking their noses through the soil yet, so wondered where you were to get them into flower this early.

I have two pots of violacea, which is not only one more than I thought I had but one more than I should have had. One should been what it was labelled: 'Stormcloud'! >:(

Tecophilaea 'Stormcloud' is a Kath Dryden selection, I think? Perhaps a mix-up has happenend and you received seedlings from Stormcloud by mistake?

I take it that your Tecs  are flowering now, too......early yet!

Ah! Padova, my favourite City in the whole world (or at least of the ones I've seen!) I have wonderful memories of sitting in the piazza outside the University over a couple of bottles of red, watching the newly graduated students go through their 'initiation' ceremony surrounded by laughing parents, siblings and friends.

Not flowering yet Maggi, but it did last season. I bought both at a show and suspect someone had inadvertently, or otherwise, swapped labels around?
