Nothoscordum ostenii

A pretty little South American bulb.  I grow it, but struggle to get enough flowers to make it look attractive.

Paeonia cambessedesii

Everyone's favourite, slightly tender peony.

Ophrys bombylifolia

This orchid has tiny flowers like little bees, but is always fascinating when you see it in flower.  It must be a challenge to find it in the wild.

Cyrtanthus falcatus

One of the features of the Wisley alpine house these days is the number of South African bulbs they grow.  The recently retired Paul Cumbleton is mainly responsible for this, but I believe his successor, Cara Smith, is also particularly interested in this area.
