I'm glad you ID'd your flower.
Pamela, that is such a sweet story :)
My grandfather planted the beginnings of them. Then, the house sat empty for a while or no one cared to do any gardening. When I found out what they were, I started collecting seeds. Once scattered, if they touch the soil and get some water, they'll grow. I collected seeds for years. Scattered them in ammo boxes and grew more. They are great with drought and they make me feel gook every time
The season for seeds is in the Spring. If you keep my email addy, we can exchange seeds next year or if you'd like to exchange a bulb, I'll double what you send me back to you.
I realize you aren't the ones that have the rain lilies. So, we can't trade. But, I do have some seeds. How do you send me your mailing addy without the entire world seeing it?
now. Keep an eye out!!
The more I look at your pictures, I think that I identified them incorrectly. Your blooms are larger than a Rain Lily. Look up "Habranthus" and see if that doesn't identify them correctly. How long does your blooms last? Rain lilies are a very short period, 3-4 days, then a seed pod develops and it turns black. What is actually turning black are the seeds inside. I saved seeds for years and
If you were interested in exchanging bulbs, I'd send you 3 bulbs for ea bulb of yours. I offer that only because I have so many. You DEFINITELY want to save your seeds in the future.
Glad that I could have been of some help to you. My Master Gardener training has paid off. Next year, you'll be looking for their blooms and get those seeds started for future bulbs. Mother Nature is a remarkable lady.
