Urginea undulata

The flowers of U. undulata are very attractive in a modest way.

Urginea undulata
Urginea fugax

The tiny Urginea fugax is also putting up a flowering shoot.

Urginea fugax
Habranthus tubispathus

Elsewhere in the greenhouse, the thunderstorms brought out some rainlilies.  This plant was acquired as Habranthus martinezii which it is not.  Sorry for the poor photo.

Habranthus gracilifolius subsp texensis
Habranthus martinezii

On the other hand, these are H. martinezii.

Habranthus martinezii
Zephyranthes

This was grown from seed as Zephyranthes rosea, which it is not (does anyone have the real thing - I would love some seed).  This flower is akin to Z.Labuffarosea.

Zephyranthes
Zephyranthes aff primulina

This was acquired as Z. Pink Beauty which it clearly isn't!  Very pretty though

Zephyranthes aff primulina
Sarcocaulon vanderitae

Finally, a little succulent bush from South Africa, in the Geraniaceae.

Gladiolus Ruby

Taking a quick look at some of the bulbs in pots which have come out of the greenhouse and are standing on the patio for the summer.

Gladiolus Ruby
Agapanthus Northern Star

The Agapanthus in pots have performed really well this year, perhaps because they are getting pot bound.

Tigridia pavonina
Tigridia pavonina
Tigridia vanhouttei

A smaller, and much more refined beauty than its sister T. pavonina

Tigridia vanhouttei
Lilium leichtlinii

Absolutely magnificent, in the shade under the cherry tree.
