Acis tingitana

Acis tingitana (Baker) Lledó, A.P.Davis & M.B.Crespo, syn. Leucojum tingitanum is native to Morocco and Tangier and is a late winter to spring flowering species with 4-5 small white flowers on long nodding pedicels up to 45 cm. It is similar to Acis longifolia, but the leaves are shorter than the flowering stem. The first image is of plants grown and photographed by Rob Hamilton flowering in mid winter in Tasmania. Image 2 shows it flowering in late winter in a bulb frame in Oregon, grown from seed and photographed by Jane McGary. It is reputed to be tender, but the Oregon specimen is shown in bloom six weeks after experiencing temperatures in the low 20s Fahrenheit, under glass. Image 3 by Tony Goode shows it exhibited at Harlow Alpine Garden Society show in March 2002. The plants were exhibited by Jim Archibald, quite possibly from the same seed collection as those in Jane's photograph. Photos 4-6 taken by Hans Joschko.
