Oxalis ennaephylla 'Sheffield Swan'

Oxalis ennaephylla 'Sheffield Swan'

A choice Peter Erskine introduction from the Falklands , (I believe Kath Dryden actually named it), Sheffield Swan was his boat that was sunk by an exocet missle, Peter has been out to the nursery and stands out as one of the best plantsmen I have ever met. Large white flowers with a green eye, it is a bit slow to increase but worth the wait.

Polyxena corymbosa

Polyxena corymbosa

From the winter rainfall regions of the Cape, small Scilla-like bulbs produce of a half dozen 2cm violet purple flowers in late autumn. We suspect that this is actually Polyxena longituba. “One time at band camp” … no wait that was a flute …”what's my name bitch”.

Prospero autumnale

Prospero autumnale

Used to be Scilla autumnale, but now is prospering in the garden under this fancy new name. Whatever you call it, great loose spikes of handsome blue flowers in late summer (July/August for us) followed by unobtrusive foliage. A perfect pick-me up for a tired late summer garden. Zone 5, at least – Joseph

Scilla tubergeniana (mistchenkiana)

Scilla tubergeniana (mistchenkiana)

Scilla tubergeniana (Syn Scilla mischtschenkoana) This is the coolest little bulb I've seen in a long time. And when I say little, I mean LITTLE. A wee rosette of dark green leaves barely an inch across, topped with a flower almost as large delicately flushed lavender and pink. In full bloom, less then two inches tall, it is the absolute final word in adorable. Even better, blooms incredibly early, along side your snowdrops, eranthis, and Cyclamen coum, when you are desperate for some early color. Reliably hardy here in zone 5 Michigan, offsets rapidly to form a nice clump but reportedly does not seed around, which is probably a good thing since some scillas can be a bit of weed in that respect. Zone 5, at least.

Sternbergia lutea

Sternbergia lutea

Oh how I wish this thing was a little hardier! Looks overall like a crocus, but with large, glowing flowers a rich, brilliant shade of yellow that bloom in the fall, followed by the leaves which come up and stay over the winter before going dormant in the spring. One of the showiest of fall blooming bulbs, and spectacular in mass. Zone 7

Tulbaghia natalensis

Tulbaghia natalensis

18" tall with sweet scented violet blue flowers, from South Africa, probably safest in the alpine house. We have not yet tried them outside but with South African stuff you never know, some prove completely hardy others turn to mush.
