Just wanted to add to Mary Sue's list of quick flowering seeds, if this one hasn't already been mentioned before.

I just noticed a few days ago, before our first rains of the new rainy season began, that my seedling pot of Cyrtanthus brachyscyphus not only has sent up a scape, it was about to bloom. The label says it's from seed from Mary Sue herself that I planted in Sept. of 2001. So it's just a little over a year from sowing to first flower.
