Some interesting stamens on that second one.

Looks like two of the anthers (the part that holds the pollen) want to be petals!

I thought I recognized your handle. It is hard to get anything other than the white, maroon,yellow combo. I sent some to Norway around the same time. I forgot who that was :*/

It was I who got some bulbs from you. They're not blooming yet so I can't show pictures yet.

It's always nice to see outcomes. Mr. Mom was that from the little 'Bravura' I gave you a while back?

I am pretty sure i did. Unfortunately most of my seedlings were lost in 2012 from a late spring frost followed up by a brutally hot & dry summer. Add in aphids, ground squirrels,........... Sad

I also got some from Mr. Mom. I posted these a few years ago. I tried to contact Mr. Mom to show what developed. 6 bloomed. Sorry, for some reason my camera does not like the color yellow.
