Greetings geophyte lovers,

Nhu and I enjoyed the first blooming of Ornithogalum
adseptentrionesvergentulum in April this year.  We had no idea what to
expect since no pictures exist on-line or in any of our books of this
species' flowers.  They really charmed us with their blushing, sparkly
faces and impressive number of blooms for such a tiny bulb. They open
sequentially on what appeared to be a branched inflorescence, though I
confess that I examine them very closely to be sure.  I added this species
to the wiki:…

In our experience growing this species in Berkeley, California, its leaves
haven't demonstrated quite so much determination to lean in a single
direction.  For more information and to see some truly beautiful habitat
shots of this species do check out Charles Craib's article on this species:… .

Charles Craib died earlier this year and his passing is a huge loss for the
plants he studied, wrote about and propagated so brilliantly.
Unfortunately after his death many of his plants were stolen.
