Ipheion montevidense - 2020


By Andrewr

Ipheion montevidense - 2020 (Ipheion montevidense)

Miniature bulb with an identity crisis. Having been classified as an ipheion for many years, it has now been suggested this a nothoscordum. However, one botanist has gone out a limb and says it is a tristagma. Just give it full sun and a well-drained soil and hope the nomenclature arguments aren't too much for it to take
