Hi everyone,

I have a picture of Androcymbium europaeum on one of my web sites at…

I have a few small seedlings of Androcymbium melanthoides ("Pyjama Flower") 
and of Androcymbium pulchrum in the greenhouse or the cold frame, but they 
are still far from bloom size.  I have myself seen the Androcymbium species 
that grows at Cape Point; as photographic proof I submit my fingers 
pictured with the plant in "Bulbs Revised Edition" by John Bryan.  See 
plate 160, Androcymbium eucomoides and Homo sapiens 'Jim Shields' (dactyli 
dextri) half way down the path from the top.

Best wishes,
Jim Shields
