|I've no ID on this variety even though I have a lot of them|
|I think this one is Narcissus 'White Lion'|
I'm also having trouble with my Freesia, which have a tendency to flop and lay about with their heads on the ground. I need to get more flower stakes.
The Anemones, in contrast, stand tall and proud.
The Ranunculus I planted from tubers in the fall have begun to bloom too, at least the purple variety. I love the flower but I'm not sure how I feel about the color of this one, which reads as more red than purple to me.
The biggest surprise in the bulb category was the appearance of the Hippeastrum cybister I planted along the street last year after their initial bloom as potted plants. Despite being planted in a relatively dry and inhospitable location and repeatedly being dug up by raccoons, it appears that at least 3 of the 6 are going to bloom. One already has.
|I have an ID on this one - it's Hippeastrum cybister 'Emerald'|
The succulent bulbs, Ledebouria socialis, are also blooming. They aren't easy to photograph either. I love that speckled foliage.
There's more bulb foliage coming up but, frankly, I've forgotten most of what I planted. I know there are some Spanish bluebells scattered here and there for starters. Although I keep pretty good records of my perennials and shrubs, I'm terrible about recording which bulbs I've planted, much less where I've planted them. When they show up, it's always a delightful surprise.
