Very nice!
I'm being very patient and trying to grow these from seed - they've just finished their six weeks in the fridge, so hopefully we may get some action soon!

Beautiful flowers.

Oh, that is just so beautiful. That is a plant I really really would love to have. I wonder if Crocus has it! lol! That is my idea of a truly beautiful flower. I love dainty things like that, and Clematis Crispa with the tiny pale pink bells. I think that Akebia would look lovely in a japanese garden, it's so serene looking! oh, look at that, it's come up on the right of the page with Crocus!! Well I never!.....off I go!

Gosh it is early , My maroon one has survived the winter well, hopefully I will have more flowers on it this year ......

It is indeed early, Amy - the other one has buds, so it won't be too long.

Karen - I'm not sure if the Crocus one is cream or white - it doesn't say. There is a white form too - I got mine from the RHS.

Yes, they don't seem to have the cream one any more. Oh well, I don't need it, where would I put it? :))

Thanks, Dd. I'm really glad I spotted it in the RHS magazine. I didn't know they existed before that!

Yes a good find......

It wasn't cheap, but it was a really good sized plant, and settled in immediately. :-)
