Blooming now

To All;  Ammocharis coranica is just beginning to bloom for the first time. We got the bulb 3-4 years ago, put it in a pot, ignored and forgot about it. In our winter rainfall (35 in.) inland, hot, No. Calif. location, we treated it like a winter grower-- no summer water. Despite this, it survived and this year it was accidently placed in a location where I watered regularly this summer and lo and behold it's large pink buds are progressively opening to form a large pink softball. We are pleased.  Bob Werra
