I've added several photos to the wiki, in particular some of another blooming I've had of Lycoris sprengeri here in southern California, where it's blooming alongside the Amaryllis belladonna that so easily grow and bloom here. I like the various shades of pink, magenta, and white of the Amaryllis a lot. But the blue in L. sprengeri is just fantastic. --Lee Poulsen Pasadena area, California, USDA Zone 9-10 ========================= http://pacificbulbsociety.org/pbswiki/index.php/… Griffinia aracensis My G. aracensis finally bloomed this year. The flowers are smaller than those of G. espiritensis or G. liboniana and the petals are much narrower. The leaves are also smaller and much narrower than those of espiritensis or liboniana. Griffinia liboniana And just one more photo of a full head of this beauty [Griffinia liboniana], taken August 2004. http://pacificbulbsociety.org/pbswiki/index.php/… Orthrosanthus chimboracensis Mine finally bloomed and isn't nearly as blue as Mary Sue's plants, in fact it's nearly white. http://pacificbulbsociety.org/pbswiki/index.php/… Habranthus tubispathus var. roseus finally bloomed for me from seed. The photos show what the flower looks like face on and what the outside of the petals look like. http://pacificbulbsociety.org/pbswiki/index.php/… Crinum oliganthum When I bought this from Yucca Do Nursery, they called it Crinum sp. mini-americanum. It is also called 'West Indies mini' Crinum. Their pictures show six-petaled flowers, but these are only five-petaled. The plant is very small, growing in a 1 gallon container. http://pacificbulbsociety.org/pbswiki/index.php/… Lycoris radiata var. radiata This is the sterile triploid form, received from Jim Waddick, and common throughout much of the southern USA. (See Lycoris sprengeri for a photo of the two species blooming together showing the difference in color and form.) Lycoris sprengeri Here are photos of two separate scapes from the same bulb (from Jim Waddick) blooming once again in southern California, showing how the amount of blue can change from scape to scape. (The first scape <first photo> bloomed when the temperatures were very hot, mid-to-high 90s F. <high 30s C.>, and are more pink. The second scape <second and third photos>, which bloomed when the temperatures were unusually low for August, upper 70s F. <mid 20s C.> are much more blue.) The electric-blue buds are particularly spectacular. Lycoris sprengeri & Lycoris radiata radiata Since these happened to be in bloom at the same time, I had to take a photo of them together to show how different in color and form two Lycoris can be.
