3 pans of Bulbous Plants

The Frank Badrick Memorial Trophy went to Bob and Rannveig Wallis for this grouping, including two familiar old friends and a new allium I haven't photographed before.

3 pans of Bulbous Plants
Allium caesium

The first plant in Bob and Rannveig Wallis' three pan was this allium, which I have photographed before in previous years, with rather more success.

Allium caesium
Calochortus clavatus var recurvifolius

The second plant in Bob and Rannveig Wallis' three pan was a calochortus which again is a regular visitor to the show.

Allium species JCA 17537

The final plant in Bob and Rannveig Wallis' three pan was this interesting allium raised from Archibald seed collected in the Zeravashan Mountains in Uzbekistan.

Allium kurtzianum ACW 2372

There were several pans of this little allium on the bench, the finest produced by Vic and Jan Aspland, which was awarded a Certificate of Merit and a Cultural Commendation from JRGC.

Allium paniculatum

Another great plant from Lee and Julie Martin's large six pan exhibit.

Allium paniculatum
Allium serra (?)

Another attractive little pan of onions from Mavis and Sam Lloyd.  This plant has been exhibited for a number of years under this name, but to my eye it appears to be very similar to A. paniculatum above, and having examined my pictures of it closely, and searched the internet for pictures of it growing in California, I struggle to believe it is correctly named.

Allium serra (?)
Androcymbium striatum

This plant is another old friend; George Elder has exhibited it for a number of years at this show.  This year it was particularly short and neat, though with only four flowers, where there have been more in previous years.
