Id please.
bought in the spring but cant find the label or remember where from. So any one out there give it an identity? It is an monocot and I suspect a bulb but cant be certain unless i dig it up.

?Brodiaea laxa, possibly Queen Fabiola.

Nnoo..I believe Brodiaeas have flowers in umbels, not panicles like this.

it isnt brodiaea, I have this in the back garden and wouldnt have bought more as i have about 6 clumps of it. thanks for the suggestion thoough.

Long, Iris-like leaves, SBG? Maybe some kind of aristea?

23 Jun, 2010

 

no more long and grass like. Think it begins with p or t. really should catalogue things better.

Hmm...maybe a flax lily (Dianella)?

Agapanthus has flowers in umbels also.

I have found it it is Pasithea. Trawled through the invoices last night. yippee.
So label is written ready to pop in to night when i get in from work.

Where did you buy that? It is a monotypic bulb from Chile. Cannot say I have ever seen it on sale anywhere. I would have bought it if I had.

Bob Brown's nursery 'Cotswold Cottage Flowers/nursery'. they sell on line too. good plants at a reasonable-ish price. everything from them has been really good. he also gives them a rating out of 10.. well worth a browse and a drool.
