Deqr all, I would like to stand up for this Moraea, as I particularly appreciate this 'Homeria' type. It is the last Moraea of the season here. Indeed the individual flower does not last very long (here several days), but the ramified infloresence has at least 20 flowers which open during a period of 2-3 weeks. I have to add that they are planted in the ground under 35% shade and have sufficient humdity to keep them going. I confirm that plenty seed. is produced which is collected at the end of the growing period (mid June). To answer Jim M.question: yes it is very worthwhile plant to grow Greetings -- Lauw de Jager Bulb¹Argence France http://www.bulbargence.com/ Zone 9 (mediterrean climate; with plenty of olive trees) Le 14/05/09 16:07, « Jim McKenney » <firstname.lastname@example.org> a écrit : > I'm wondering if five hours per flower is enough to warrant space in the > collection. Bob Werra: M. polyanthos blooms toward the end of the winter growing moraea season. With maturity it will produce a number of medium sized light blue ?fragrant? blossoms during late afternoon to evening and will repeat every few days for several weeks.
