Since I was given a nothoscordum collection some years ago, I still have many of them, even though I don't have a greenhouse. I winter them over inside squeezed onto a small windowsill, and some pots I've moved to my office windowsill at work. Of course, the delightful & desirable miniature yellow-flowered species (with fragrant flowers too), are species such as N. montevidense. I also have one pot with Nothoscordum inodorum (the ~bad~ one). I've always been amused by the name, considering the fact the flowers are intensely sweet, but the "inodorum" part refers to the fact the plant is lacking an alliaceous odor, distinguishing it from the closely akin genus Allium. I also had N. nocturnum (or N. inodorum var. nocturnum), which is very similar to the type inodorum, except the flowers are crepuscular (opening at dusk), and also intensely fragrant. Only had one flower stem last year. Not sure if I still have it, it might be on my office windowsill... will check tomorrow when I'm at work. If you want a "safer" plant to grow (not invasive), that also has a powerfully sweet perfume and is easily grown, try Tulbaghia simmleri (T. fragrans). For years I grew it in my office, and it would bloom for weeks and even a single small flower can fill the room with fragrance. Last year it died after flowering, not sure why but I think I didn't water it enough... sheer neglect on my part. http://plantbuzz.com/Alliaceae/Tulbaghia/… Mark McDonough Pepperell, Massachusetts, United States firstname.lastname@example.org "New England" USDA Zone 5 ============================================== >> web site under construction - http://www.plantbuzz.com/ << alliums, bulbs, penstemons, hardy hibiscus, western american alpines, iris, plants of all types!
