Narcissus 'Rijnvelds Early Sensation' .
I should really grow hundreds of Narcissus cultivars but there are so many grown locally that I stick to a few really special ones. 'Rijnvelds Early Sensation' produces these fantastically early flowers in the darkest dreary depths of winter and is wonderful beyond words.

Chirita sclerophylla .
This opened a couple of weeks ago, but it has been getting better and better, so it is worth showing again. I was convinced that it wasn't going to flower this year, but it has surprised me.

10th December 2006

Clivia miniata White Throat .
An early flower from the Clivia, this seedling has a white throat, which is one of the more modern breeding lines. It is as well to stay rather calm about Clivia, or you go slightly mad.

Nerine bowdenii 'Ostara' .
A very pale pink form of Nerine bowdenii that flowers very late and deserves a well protected location in the garden (like the greenhouse!)

Acorus Alocasia Anemone Arisaema Arum Asarum Aspidistra Begonia Bromeliads Camellia
Carnivorous Cautleya Chirita Chlorophytum Clivia Colocasia Crocosmia Dionaea Drosera Epimedium

I have a lot of good intentions when it comes to updating this site, and I try to keep a note about what is going on, if you are interested.
