    At least you got a flower! Mine kept getting eaten, though I did see one in bud before all the wind and rain arrived. Now I can’t remember whether I brought the pot inside. Do you remove the bulbs after flowering to replant next spring? Or just keep them dry?

    • Cathy says:

      Mine are in the Coop, Jude, so away from inclement weather and nibblers – I planted 3 (or maybe it was 5) last year and this single flower stem is the only result, apart from one very elongated and floppy leaf that fell over as soon as it got to any height. Once the flower dies off I shall just stop watering I suppose, but will check aftercare suggestions first

    It is lovely in its elegance.

    Mine haven’t done very well this year either. Like Jude, I have found most of them eaten.

    • Cathy says:

      Mine are in the Coop and if nibblibg is commonplace they will certainly stay there! I guess that if the other bulbs in the pot have done nothing this year they are unlikely to do anything next year either. Are yours outside?

  5. His color is lovely. I did not know this flower. I think it’s very pretty and elegant. And you have a flower at this time of year. I will not have seen it in all its splendor of growth and flowering like other years when you planted Cathy. I imagine that’s where the blog title comes from. Take care Greetings from Margarita.
