Tristagma violaceum, ex Nothoscordum sp. Flores & Watson 8485, Santiago, seed from BX 476 in 2021 is blooming for the first time. About 5-6" tall  

My first thought was it looked like Nothoscordum gracile which makes numerous tiny offsets can invade a collection or lawn if you ever had one or got one in a mislabel and reuse any soil. I hope this is better behaved.

Sinningia bullata. I like this plant best when it is just sprouting and not growing all over. This is a 8" pot of seeds Dell sent me in 2016 that i never separated, just increased pot size as needed

Received as Narcissus romieuxii. I make no claims on id correctness

In outside covered frame. One day after a 3 day gully washer and warm humid air above 60°F, preceded by a week completely below freezing with lows down to +4°F . I put a frost blanket single layer in the frame ad closed the plastic lid when it got below 15°F

Sinningia cardinalis x S. bullata. Blooming for first time with orange flowers from the Bullata side (S. bullata on left in first snap). The second growth of leaves may also have some bullated characteristics of the bullata parent (hope).

I put a few sibs of this sinningia cross in the last US BX before any had bloomed. I wonder if anyone had similar of different results
