Chris, I missed your posting. If it has 8 tepals it is N. dialystemon. Nothoscordum felipponei (I. sellowianum) has always 6 tepals.
Thanks Alberto, that makes it N.dialystemon, database updated. The plant will be moving into the rock garden once the snow has melted - again!
Hristo passed away, after a long illness, on 11th November 2018. His support of SRGC was  much appreciated.

Some Tecophileas today - var. cyanocrocus and var. violacea. Also have var. leichtlinii out but harder to photograph!

Your Bifidas are nice and early Fermi, not a sign from mine yet. Do you grow the large, deep red form, also known as 'Granatiflora'? By all accounts it seems to be a magnificent plant.

Trichopetalum plumosum from a F&W collection. Short lived flowers on lanky stems but self fertile and sets lots of seed which is about it's only virtue!

Can probably manage that Davey - probably some 1 year old seedlings too.
