    Great flowers, Bruce. I've recently started growing a few Bulbos. I started with Cirr. lepidum, which bloomed nicely, and I was solidly hooked. I now have quite a few--about a dozen, including a couple of unknowns. (I really need to update my plant list!) So far, the only other one to bloom for me is Eed (primary hybrid of Bulbo annandalei X longissimum). I didn't get a chance to photograph it, unfortunately.
