Cyclamen hederifolium spreads over the dryer parts over the garden under conifers and other trees.
One plant followed the trend to "modern" crevice gardening and appeared in a horizontal service, supported
by ants.

Hi Rudi,

Almost all my cyclamen are evergreen here, but I don't expect flowers for another month.  Yours are beautiful!

I am in USDA zone 8b where temperatures almost never fall below 15F -9.4C.  Rainfall 50" 110 cm + but none  June-September.  We seldom get snow; but when it comes we get 30" overnight. Soil is sandy loam with a lot of humus.

C europeum is a synonym for C purpurascens.

Diane,

I hadn't realized that.  C. purpurascens is usually available on one or more of the seed exchanges.

Hello, I have 3 different Sternbergias. No. 1 is Sterbnergia greutheriana (ex J. Ruksans),



which is considered by many to be lutea. No. 2

716381-1

is purchased as S. lutea and is sized between No. 3,



also purchased as lutea.
Incidentally, the greuteriana is the one that gets the most water and nutrients and whose flowers are more reminiscent of crocus
because they are very short stems. On Pic 3 you can see, that for this sternbergia, the leave appear bevore! the flower???
Does anyone have any information about this for me?

Greetings
Bernd

Bernd,

I have never grown Sternbergia; but, seeing yours makes me want to try some.

Bernd, Nr. 3 is truly Sternbergia lutea, Nr. 2 could be S. sicula. All Sternbergia
species are good performers if they grow in suitable places; in my experience
 S. lutea is the easiest to cultivate. Good luck with your plants!

Thanks Rudy. This is very informative for me! The plants have been in place for a long time, so I assume they are established. Another question: is there an identification key for Sternbergia online?

Unfortunately, my garden offers hardly any places where to grow sternbergias successfully. My only clone was collected more than 45 years ago on the Istrian isle Losinj. It flowers always with leaves developed and obviously doesn´t require much sun, as long as a dry rest in summer is provided.



A begonia I bought as B. taliensis, more probably B. asperifolia or something similar.



Some more roscoeas of the Paul Bygrave´s strain, this one with rosy-lilac flowers.



This one resembles ´Red Gurkha´, yet the stems are green and the red of the flowers a bit more purplish.



Several Roscoea scillifolia are in flower, I received the seed only a few months ago from SRGC! Many thanks to the kind donors!
