    One of my favourite Bulbo's. Here seen in about a 5 inch or maybe 6 inch pan - actually a plant saucer giving about 2cm depth of compost ; with 8 spikes of flowers. They look like little sparklers- the indoor fireworks my kids used to have for birthday parties.
    I had thought/hoped to put it up for a Cultural Award from the RHS, but the next meeting ( in London) is when I shall be on a walking/climbing holiday in our English Peak District a couple of hundred miles away- so no go this year.
    So here for you to enjoy anyway.
