From Mary Sue Ittner: (SEEDS)
	1. Delphinium nudicaulethis one is a dark red, rather than the usual 
orange red. It bloomed early before the others so seedlings might 
turn out to be this color.

	2. Haemanthus deformis- mostly evergreen, with giant leaves and 
beautiful flowers in winter, often when not much else is blooming; I 
grow this year round in my unheated greenhouse in Northern California.…
	3. Gloriosa superbasummer growing, I let it dry out in winter in my 
greenhouse, but grow it there in summer where it gets extra warmth in 
my cooler summer climate. This is a photo of it in bloom.…
4.  Brunsvigia grandifloraonly a few seed, some sprouting, summer 
flowering in South Africa, but mine in California bloom late fall, early winter

5. Moraea polystachyalong blooming fall into winter, may need some 
moisture during dormancy, comes into growth early fall

lovely plant, see photos here from Nhu and me…
