Bessera elegans

By Meanie


Bessera elegans  (Bessera elegans (Coral drops))

New this year.
I planted ten corms, seven came up and just four of those have flower stems. I don't care though, just one would have been worth the effort!

Thanks Motinot!

Lots of interesting things there Sticki! My next thing to look forward to is my Lycoris maybe. Just found buds on my last Toad Lily too.........

It's like opening a new beautifully illustrated book each day, turning over the page and finding something else new. I saw the toad lily too - why does it have such a name?

22 Aug, 2011

 

Maybe it was given it's common name by someone who once kissed a toad!!

i think it certainly has something to do with handsome princes ~ or toads??

Stickie I have the same problem with my camera, so many little windows to go into and when I can't find anything I ask Gerry, he's the logical one.....I'm the illogical one LOL.....I do try to sort things out myself but when it comes to electronic things I'm useless.......!!!! Superb flower, looks tropical to me.
