Morning again Pauline! These are stunning, especially in large groups! They're another one I've had limited success with though! They always grow, and produce lots of lush green foliage, but I usually only get a few flowers! Haven't bothered with them this year! 😀

Saw them on here last year Ian @bigemrg and was told they were difficult to grow. I think I bought 20 bulbs ......as you say there's lots of foliage but only 5 have got buds!! Hey ho at least that's 5 more than I had :)

Morning Keely ......you're welcome to peruse mine of course. I've grown these in pots as it's the first time and also because they need to be lifted before the frosts :)

We have grown these in past years. Always have started them indoors and then planted them outdoors in late May. They don't like too much water but do need plenty of warm sunshine. Always liked the flowers and found they had a lovely scent! We call them acidanthera!
