It’s a beauty Elaine - very pleased a few more have popped up this year, I started off with just one bulb last year and looks like I’ve already got at least five now 😲 @wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom

It is isn’t it Christine? It’s not sold that much in uk, only through specialists and it’s not at all hardy so it needs winter protection. They are from South Africa originally. The colour has been changing daily, and what started as just red buds is now resembling a traffic light colour system - posted an update pic today 👍🏼 @pixierose

The cape cowslip is coming on nicely in the tunnel, too tender for outside - loving the spotty flower stem already 😍 #lachenalia #lachenaliaquadricolor #lachenalia-quadricolor #capecowslip #fourcolorcapecowslip

Quite looking forward to see this in flower. As the Latin name suggests, the flowers have four different colours in them - red, green, yellow and orange/pink. Trying hard to keep the frost off them. #lachenalia #lachenalia-quadricolor #lachenaliaquadricolor #capecowslip #fourcolorcapecowslip
