Dave, I'm so glad you took photos of that first mystery bulb. I also saw those near Cuzco in mid-February a few years ago. But every single flower was a closed bud. None of them were open, although they looked very iris-like to me. I desperately wanted to see one open, but I guessed they were only open during the part of the day when I wasn't there. Now maybe I can find out what they are. --Lee Poulsen Pasadena area, California, USDA Zone 9-10 On May 16, 2005, at 12:45 AM, Laura & Dave wrote: > I've recently returned from a wonderful trip to Peru (mid-February to > mid-March), and have finally gotten pictures of a couple of bulbs onto > the mystery bulb page.
