Hans,
I have a Amarine coming into flower for the first time and can you imagine my excitement. Hopefully my Amarcrinum will also flower this year. I am hoping to make some more Amarygia crosses this year too. My Amaryllis Belladonna and Brunsvigia litorallis and B orientalis are also pushing flowers now.

We do not get snow here in Cape Town but the summer brings so much joy with the flowers popping up all the time now. There is life showing in most of the some 300 pots with various bulbs. I am also anxiously waiting for a flower spike to show on one of my Phaedranassa viridiflora bulbs that I managed to buy one year ago. They are just growing babies at the moment and lots of leaves.

Heini,
like Hans, I am green with envy. I think I have to wait until I am grey with my B.haemanthoides seedlings. Wonderful pictures, also the ones which show both species. Congratulations.
Best wishes,
Renate

Good stuff Heinie, perhaps one day soon I'll be able to visit your collection  :)

I own property much further east, between the towns of Swellendam and Heidelberg, to where I hope to move in a few years time. Many Irids grow there and also huge plants of Brunsvigia (B. orientalis ?) with great leaves growing flat on the ground here and there.

Rogan,

I have a number of Brunsvigia orientallis pushing scapes at the moment. My Brunsvigia litorallis are at the end of the flowering already. Seed pods are fat with crosses with different Amaryllis Belladonna plants.
