Erythronium "dwarf grandiflorum" from Mt Prevost:
"New roots were forming as I repotted these bulbs in August, so I suspect this species would not take kindly to being too hot and dry in the summer."

I collected seeds from them in 1998, and sent them to the AGS seed exchange.  I kept some, which germinated, but they did not go on to become plants.  I am impressed with your success.

The plants grow on a rocky slope, out in the open and not under any shrubs.  They would not get much rain in summer - we seldom get more than a few  rainshowers between May and October.

I must visit them again this year.

It is a very lovely plant Diane, I may have got the seed indirectly from you, I am lucky to have it.

I hope that I can sustain it in the garden and as I have had a small amount of seeds from it for two years now I am hopeful that it will stay with us.
It is a fascinating plant and I would love to see what variation there is in the wild population and how it relates to the larger Erythronium grandiflorum.

The early rooting that I observed may just be a response to our wet conditions.

If you do visit the site again please let me see some pictures of the habitat and flower details.

Hello Ian,
I find this lily bulbs agglomerate is extraordinary. What variety is it? Once detached, they will be less congested.
In this case, how do those who are in the ground to feed? Are they connected to other vegetatively bulbs or they are independent and just nested within each other?

Fred
It is a form of Lilium pyrenaicum and appear to be just a tightly packed group of individual bulbs that have formed from the original one I planted.
I will show more when I get round to splitting and planting them in the Bulb Log.

The snow powder gives such a magical look to the garden, and the troughs are fantastic! Thank you for the timely info on Eranthis pinnatifida. Since YT showed it last weeknd I kept thinking about it. Three years to have it in flower is not bad at all!

Yes Gabriela, we were very pleased to get first flowers in three years -  I had feared it would take longer.

Hi Ian it was great to see the eranthis pinnatifida and byunsanensis, this last one is one you don't hear of very much so was especially welcome.

And a characterful, twisted trunk and branches. Ian will work some bonsai magic on it no doubt!

Interested to see a single Cyclamen leaf amongst the frozen leaves that is untouched by frost. Looks like it might be a seedling, which highlights the variability of individuals and importance of raising from seed.

Another thought-provoking edition, Ian.
I immediately went on-line to see what sort of engraving tools were available in Australia.
They vary enormously from a few dollars (mostly from sellers in Hong Kong!) to a couple of hundred for the deluxe models with multi-functions,
so I'll need to think about it a bit more!
