I only have to see the word 'viridis' tacked on to a South African bulb, and I want to grow it. There are some astonishing green flowered bulbs from the Cape area
, so when I saw bulbs of this one offered at Wisley it was irresistable. Easily grown, it has come up into flower without any trouble, and gone on to set copious seed
which has germinated easily. All in all, I have been very pleased, though I would accept that the flowers are more green than astonishing.
