Howdy All, I was at a nursery yesterday and hving a discussion with the owners about a couple of things that they are growing. Knowing I was a bit of an uncommon plant collector they asked me whether I knew the differences between Aristea ecklonii and Libertia caerulea? I can't find any information on the latter so I thought I'd ask here and see what responses I got. I realise not technically a bulb, but I figure it is definitely within the realm of what we all grow here, so it should be acceptable? The 2 plants they were growing under the separate names were identical, to the point that I think they were both Aristea ecklonii which fitted the bill perfectly from references. Is Libertia caerulea an older name, does it even exist as a name or is it just a complete mislabelling? The plants they had had very distinct flattened stems, with clusters (umbells?) of flowers on the end of each branch of the stem. A lovely intense mid-blue to mauvey colour (difficult to describe). Whatever they are they are very nice, but they were wanting to find out for sure whether the Libertia was a mislabelling. I have searched on "Libertia caerulea" on google and not got a single match, so I have to wonder re existence/spelling? A similar search of "Libertia caerula" brings up a single nursery that stocks it (Dancing Oaks nursery). Can anyone help? Cheers. Paul Tyerman Canberra, Australia.
