Geophytes At The Getty

On a beautiful spring day (April 16, 2003) there were a number of geophytes in bloom at the Getty Center. I thought you all might enjoy seeing how geophytes - including some South African and Mediterranean bulbs - are used in public displays here in So Cal. These pix can also serve as "mystery bulb" photos, because while I knew enough to know they were bulbs, I don't know their proper IDs! Images posted by Jennifer Hildebrand.

Here's an Alstroemeria:
