Dear All,
I have just posted  the images of 5 pink Romuleas. To sort out their
identities can be quite confusing. The following in order of flowering
time :
R atrandra (now in flower), tetragona (just starting), subfistulosa,
komsbergensis, rosea (flowers very late)
The differences between the species is especially in the markings at the
base of the petals. All are very easy to grow, except R komsbergensis,
which does not multply well for me.
