More midwinter flowers

Some more things in flower this weekend.

This is Narcissus asturiensis, the smallest and earliest of the trumpet daffodils. It is not easy to maintain for long in the garden and is rarely commercially available and therefore expensive when it is. The second picture has my thumb for scale to show how tiny this Narcissus is.

Then we have two South African species in the greenhouse.

Gladiolus griseus has quite small flowers but is pretty in an understated way:

Definitely not understated is Lachenalia aloides:


  1. Thank you😀
    Luckily where we are we only get a few nights of slight frost most winters. Tonight being one of them.
    Coincidentally we have our first ever amaryllis in the living room about to flower!
