Hi Shelly,  Enjoying all the rain lately.... I'm just loving it,,, Crinum
season ;-))  I don't actually don't know which fratillia I have, I just
thought they looked unusual & it was an experiment to see if they would
survive my exposed soilless, dry mountain top environment & I wasn't paying
attention when I bought them & forgot to put the name in my flower
collection data base, where I try to keep a photo & botanical name of every
bulb I buy... If your thinking, I bet he buys too many, !!! you'd be very
right haha.....
I'm away from home for a week or two, but will see if I saved the photo &
hopefully I might have the name if I kept the docket
It hasn't flowered yet but I think the colour is a reddish brown, maybe
with little speckles I think, but I cant quite remember which one I
grabbed,  I have the memory of a goldfish... Mine are about 3 years old &
still in 6" pots,, in shade, in searls premium potting mix with about
10% fine loamy sand mix... Not suitable for everyone but I have good
success in my environment & it retains enough moisture for the regular
times I'm away for longer periods...
I think I might have got mine from Tesselars...
