Winter Growers

Hi Everybody,

I just wanted to share some pictures of some South African bulbs that I grow. They're winter-growers so 'Tis the Season!

This one is probably Albuca bruce-bayeri

Albuca spiralis

Albuca hallii

Ornithogalum concordianum

Mixed South African bulbs... Oxalis, Gladiolus (not blooming yet), Massonia pustulata.

Love the Albucas! My very ordinary Albuca is out at the moment - green and yellow - and it's having a great season after the drought earlier this year.

Admiration for the Oxalis combination, too - and don't envy you the repotting job. Multiplication is what every Oxalis excels at - unfortunately. (Still love them, tho').

Thanks! I'm going to have to mark some of the oxalis bulbs to dig up. They're starting to overgrow the Massonia.
