A couple of decades ago I collected a handful of bulbs from Ellen Willmott's abandoned garden at Warley Place (with the permission of the Essex Naturalists Trust). They were trying to identify the plants that were growing there, and these few bulbs were quite interesting, but not immediately identifiable. I palnted them out under some trees, and they have increased. I think I have two different clones, but there is possibly a third mixed in as well. They all fit into the general outline of G.plicatus ssp byzantinus. For reference, I call this 'Warley Place A'.
