Griffinias are small, but fun.
Onto the biggies like G. hyacinthina and Worsleya rayneri.  These an have 10
to 20 flowers/spike the size of hippeastum flowers.  You could grow old and
grey waiting fo rthe pleasures of the blooms, but these lilac flowers offers
some of the nicest hues of "blue" in the amaryllidaceae.  Addmittedly there
are reddish pigments influencing the shades of lilac, but... These seem to
need ooler drier nights in the summer, too.
