Hi Anne Marie,
There is one easy one to identify amongst them… - Watsonia
'Ardern's White' for sure.

I think the others are likely to be hybrids, I've been trying to identify
the first on the list for some time.

Best Wishes,
Dave (Plymouth, UK)

> Watsonia mystery bulbs.  I've had these bulbs for a long time some several
years never knowing their names, because it didn't matter at the time, they
were just special to me.  My mother's friends had given them to me when I
bought my 1st home (I'm into my 2nd now) and they said they have had them in
their gardens for over 50 years. But since I've joined this group I'm on a
quest to ID my garden. Photo 1 and 4 are tall, over 3.5 foot tall and photo
2 and 3 are dwarf under 3 ft tall.  The org dwarf seems to multiply better
than the light pink dwarf. Both of the dwarfs I've had for 20 years.  The
others maybe only 10 years. I live in Souther California, in the San Gabriel
Valley.  Due to the weather here I only have to remove bulbs or any plant
for dividing.  So some of these clump are getting big. If anyone has any
idea on their names I would love to now and give them the recognition they
deserve. Ann Marie Rametta.
