Colchicum season 2006 underway; Habenaria blephariglottis
Sun, 27 Aug 2006 21:26:04 PDT
Yes Jim, my Platanthera blephariglottis are just finishing blooming. They went up from 3 spikes last year to 7 this year.I wrote a little description of them, along with the Pecteilis (Habenaria) radiata growing with them, and e-mailed it to some of my hort-friends and I'll forward it to you. I'll also send the text to the pbs list, I have a horrible time trying to maneuver to the edit page to add photos to the wiki.

Buds of the first of this season's colchicum are up; these are from a plant
received last autumn as the cultivar 'Disraeli' and not yet proven. 

Also in bloom in the bog trays: Habenaria (Platanthera) blephariglottis.
Bonaventure, are yours blooming now?

a deep pot of water the other day has brought a pot of Zephyranthes
grandiflora into bloom again.
