    Differs from the ordinary or "type" form of the species in having the dark eye , which looks almost black, until you get close, and can see it is red..
    A first flowering of this plant in my collection which I have had for a couple of years , so it is just welcome to see it. I hope for longer spikes on better bulbs in the future, but maybe this variety is naturally different in this respect. Who knows !

    The dark eye is smashing. Really gives it a different look.

    thanks for the nice comparison with the type form. The flower with the black (reddish) eye is remarkable.
