Colchicum autumnale is coming on strongly, both a white form and deep 
pink 'Nancy Lindsey'.  This species multiplies well and is relatively 
tidy in flower and leaf.
Nerine filifolia is having a good year; also in bloom is the Archibald 
offering of N. bowdenii, from 3000m in Lesotho, blooming a month ahead 
of any others, as described.  It took 7 years from sowing to flowering.
There are a few furtive blooms of Cyclamen hederifolium poking out of a 
very protected spot.
