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?
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
I had lots of leaves which also flopped, but no flowers. I found the pot, still outside and still with the bud! I’ll bring it indoors now. Maybe they will do better next year 😊
Hope so for you – and for me and mine too!
But it is apretty color.
Well yes, and that’s probably one of the reasons I got the bulbs in the first place
It is lovely in its elegance.
Mine haven’t done very well this year either. Like Jude, I have found most of them eaten.
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?
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.
This is the first year of planting Margarita and there were other bulbs in the pot but they have not showed at all, and no foliage either
Cathy if it is a bulb that can be planted for more years, maybe next year it will bloom in all its splendor. Greetings from Margarita.
Yes, maybe it well, but I get the impression from othr bloggers it can be temperamental
