Hans,

All 3 are excellent.  I particularly like the density of the head on the last one.  Beautiful!!

Paul - thank you  :D

I'm also happy for this old hybrid - I have it searched for a long time .
The flower looks for me more like a S.katherinae typ ....but in winter it is not evergreen .

Another group of bulbs that I have overlooked - what marvellous heads they have.

Hans,
Interestingly, I have a shoot currently starting here on Scadoxus puniceus 'Magnificus' (I don't think the name is valid anymore, but whatever it is it appears different to the straight species I ahve seen elsewhere).  The red shoot is about 2 inches tall at the moment, but I think thick enough to be a scape, not just a growth shoot.  I think it is a bit early from memory, although I am fairly sure it has flowered very early in previous years too.
Cheers.
