Sprekelia color mutation

To all Sprekelia enthusiasts,

I have two plantings of Sprekelia (for about 15 years) numbering somewhere
between 200 and 250 bulbs. About five months ago, I dug up about 75 bulbs to
make room for something else. Having done nothing with the area, a half
dozen small offsets have come up. I was going to dig them out soon, but did
not. Man am I glad! One of them is just now blooming and it is a color
mutation.  The color is NOT subtle! It is quite a contrast.  The flower and
foliage are clearly Sprekelia, but not the color.

I will hold the surprise for a couple of days until the flower is fully
open. "Stay tuned for the surprise."
