Betcha it is A. bulgaricum - mine are looking just like this! The other name for them i can never remember..it starts 'Nectasporum' and then something like sikkimensis...I'll look it up.

Nectaroscordum siculum bulgaricum - I've got quite a few, they seem so spread themselves, whether by division of bulbs or seed I don't know but I do like it.

It is Nectaroscordum, I remember buying them and have just checked 'my garden'.

Well done with that name, Wagger! It's much easier to call them A. bulgaricum...LOL. I have some - not as many as there were last year, though/ :-((( Not fair - why aren't mine seeding or spreading?

So you all leave them in,? I was going to take them out........

Do you mean to store over winter? It shouldn't be necessary, Dd.

I even leave them in here, Daisy and it's a few degrees colder here in the winter. (a big few degrees compared to you and Spritz)
