welcome ... and awesome pictures. I will surf your website to see if I can find the name of the one (and only) I have in my yard....
Tell us, are they best shared via bulbs or seeds?

gone tropical................ Thank you for the welcome.... It is very nice to be here!
Hope you manage to identify the one you have......... if not tell me what it looks like and i will take a very good guess. LOL
Please do sign the guestbook while you are there........... pretty please!!


It is best to grow them from corm rather than seed.......... sometimes they don't grow true from seed.

I have added a picture of mine in this thread at the first page, take a look, but I am sure it is just the very plain-jane, average-joe no-name kind. I still love it, though

I have just had a look at the one on page 1 that you posted....... It looks a lot like one called 'Carminea'.

Have a look at my pic and see what you think.... http://www.simplesite.com/CROCOSMIA/5330368?i=6119983

Forgot to add................... If it is 'Carminea', you have quite a special one there, not just a common one!!
Where did you get it from????????????????????????
