Thanks guys!

It is in my glasshouse - like lingulata it will just about survive outside but the leaves get really badly damaged in our wet & windy winters.

Here is a wider picture which shows the neighbouring plants - including a lovely late form of Cyclamen cyprium which was a gift from Tony Willis.

There are some real beauties in this topic.  Full points at present though to Darren's Hyacinthoides (Scilla) aristidis.  Those blue stamen are striking.  Must be amazing in person. :o
Cheers.

Min winter temp -8 or -9C. Max summer temp 40C. Thankfully, maybe once or twice a year only.

Thanks Paul and it is :)

I'm happy at the early flowering because it usually flowers just when the light is at its most feeble and etiolates badly. It is much better behaved this year. Sadly I don't get seed as this potful is all one clone and does not seem to be self-fertile.
