Bessera elegans

Hi Diana and all,

Mine are too and it seems that they're flowering a lot later than they usually do. Last year they flowered around August and produced a huge number of cormlets. I plan on harvesting them next spring and donating the surplus to the BX. I love them and they're very easy to grow and flower but I'm ran out of space looooong ago.

Warm Regards,

P.S. I'm glad pbs is up and running. :-)

My Besseras are all in full bloom now, and I have a new fuchsia pink one, grown from seed acquired some years ago.  There is a picture on the
blog: .  Has anyone seen any other colors (other than the usual orange one and the purple one)?
