First Sternbergia flowers for me in this year :

Sternbergia fischeriana ( or vernalis )

Have fun

Sternbergia lutea daily diary from mid-September.
I brought the bulbs from Southern Europe in May. When they were collected from my mother’s garden, they still had green leaves and live roots. Both were cut. Planted soon after in a sunny, rocky location.
Question: Do they seem to be a good ‘clone’? (They all looked the same)
I also bought bulbs from local supplier, product of Holland the package said, but I received them at the end of September. Planted them right away, and they just showing above ground growth. I hope they bloom. Can’t wait to compare them to the ones I already had in flower.

They are lovely things Nik. I've just got back from a week in the Peloponnese with Greentours - we were so lucky with the weather. It had rained a lot the week before but we had beautiful sunshine and the Sternbergia were fabulous;
