    A funny old thing is frostii ; does nothing for most of the year, then suddenly produces new growths. Likewise with the flowers. But they are sufficiently distinct to make it a keper - in fact I have another two - all with slightly different coloured flowers - a common thing in Bulbo's I find - a lot of variation in each species.

    I've toyed with getting one of these but bulbos and I often have "issues". Love the little shoes though.

    Definitely on my wish list. Your photograph is one of the best I have seen Geoff and it shows the flowers to full advantage. May I ask how big this plant is?, and can they get much bigger? Thanks in advance. AL
