oh BA i do so hope it is but I know it isnt . I'd have been hugging my self with delight. it is a pretty little thing.

Ok, if you didn't like that how about raddeana (greenish/yellow flowers) or bucharica (whiter flowers). It looks to be too small for a flowering sized imperialis.

Another thought! I can't see the stem in the picture but could it be fasciated? Frits are prone to this and it would really confuse the id.

22 Mar, 2013


no its not fasciated.

either plant would be good.

I think it is F davisii. A friend has this one and it looks very similar.

F davisii normally has one large, chequered flower per stem although, occaisonally, it can have as many as four. Yours looks as if it is going to have eight or more flowers on the one stem, putting it in the imperialis group of frits.
