    Tends to be rather a rambing plant as can be seen here - but there are maybe 4 leads, in fact two other spikes at much earlier stages. Interesting flowers I think.
    This is a plant which likes low light , and seems happy to sleep much of the year, then catches me out by having stealthily grown a new bulb and a spike.
    Perhaps not my favourite bulbo' at least when out of flower since , unlike many of its brethren, it is slow to fill a pot or cover a mount with growths.

    Correction - typo' here - the name is frostii - not rostii....
