Hyactinth bean vine and sea daffodil

Post by khabbab » July 17th, 2011, 11:21 am

Sea daffodil (pancratium maritimum) started sending blooms. The ones in soil bed just started sprouting. Which means they like pot bound for quick blooming. Thanks to Brig. Arif for gifting these precious bulbs to me.

Ismene festalis, its cousin, is growing mad, no flowers yet but that is in soil bed. so my amaryllis family bulb collection is going good so far :D
I saw these bulbs first time blooming in lawrence gardens yesterday, i think these were either ismene or pancritum.

Hyacinth bean vine, flowers are not large or showy but good summer interest.

Hyacinth vine blooms if in abundance will look great, my vine is continuously producing blooms but is growing very slowly, I have provided it extra support to climb... they are mildly scented in evening and early morning...
