Oh I really like these Spritz, are they bulbs/hardy/perrenial? Lovely :)

Very nice, not seen this variety before :o)

They're hardy perennials, Ydd. They vanish in the winter, and reappear in the spring. Unfortunately, slugs and snails love them! :-(

Thanks, Plantoholic. One to look for?

Oh Spritz, they're lovely

mine are in full bloom too. this is a beauty.

I'm ashamed to say that I have bought one of mine into the conservatory - just until the flowers open though. It's a white one.

Thanks, all. Sbg - why didn't I see yours? Where were you hiding them?

Meanie, is that to get it to flower?

7 Oct, 2011

 

you did see the ones down the side of the conservatory beside that odd doroconium flower. Mine are un- named species ones.

I just want to see a couple of blooms open Spritz..........

7 Oct, 2011

 

Oh yes, so I did. :-))

I understand that, Meanie!

Splendid....

This is a particularly bright one...I bet it stands out well. Mine is quite hard to see, even though it is near the front. Still, it's nice to have some plants that you can 'discover' as you walk around.

In a way, Karen, but they like shade, so you have to know where to look. :-)

8 Oct, 2011

 

True. You have a nice collection of these now B. They are lovely aren't they. Did you see Meanies blue one?

8 Oct, 2011

 

Nooo - I must look!

8 Oct, 2011

 

They are completely amazing! I want one :-)

Another one of mine missing this year :o(

Oh no, Amy! :-(

Troddles, I don't think it's a rare one, so keep looking. ;-)

Very striking.

12 Oct, 2011

 

Yes, you could say that! :-))

My (almost) white one has bloomed! I think that it was well worth "cheating" for.

13 Oct, 2011

 

That's good! I'll take a look.
