Mystery Bulb Solved

Rhodophiala, August, 2006
Two years ago, Janie mailed me two bulbs. They were similar, maybe not exactly the same. In August of 2006 one bloomed, followed by foliage. Later on the other one had similar foliage.

This September, the same bulb had even more red blossoms followed by foliage, followed by foliage on the second bulb. The blooms are shown here with 'Black Pearl' ornamental peppers.

The second bulb has bloomed!
White Narcissus, with Pinks foliage in front, Sweet William and verbena bonairensis behind. Foliage of the Oxblood Lily is visible to the right of the narcissus.
