Mmmm. Love Ledebouria! If I was feeling slightly brave I'd scamper out and see if the Haemanthus is furry or not.

Most of all - I delight in that Boophane! Definitely architectural.

bluebonsai - did you notice the post on Ungeria? I know your addiction tends toward S African bulbs (or nearby) but ...

Meantime - thanks for the vicarious pleasure and the rush of 'Gotta Have!'. Deeply enjoyed.

Izhar, the nice thing about Ledebouria, Drimia, Drimiopsis is that they are so easy to bloom even in the house often times so if you can find some I'm sure you would have no problem at all growing them and flowering them in large numbers!!

vetivert, I always think of the Boophane as architectural so it is nice to see others think the same way!! I'm afraid that I am unfamiliar with Ungeria so did not comment on that post, but is is an interesting new plant I had not heard of.

Glad you liked them Sue :o) Dan
