I don't know if any of you cut "ismene" scapes and bring them into the
house, but they are wonderful as a cut flower. Great bouquets of them would
be suitable for a coronation, in case you are planning one.

I found Sulphur queen always a beautiful name
but often With deformed flowers
A friend growed every year lots and wanted to stop every time
just because he did not like them because the deformed flowers
but they where sold for good money
and you have to live
this is not the only bad flower which is still in culture
just because of the money
