Dipcadi serotinum

8 comments


A member of the Hyacinthaceae family, you could call this Brownbells. It has long, thick, leaves that try to stand up, but eventually fall over. The flower scape is tall and seems to resist the wind. It is already 2½’ tall, and only half way through the flowers opening. I didn’t know when this would grow, but it started and now has these flowers. It seems to be something that the snails and slugs don’t particularly like.

Lovely.

Thanks. I think brown is the hardest color to find for a flower, which sets this one apart.

I don't think I've ever seen a truly brown flower before - what a strange plant! Did you raise it from seed?

While I do have a couple growing from seed, this is one that I bought. It takes several years to get to flowering size - the bulb is daffodil size.

Love the close up of the little flower.

Thanks. This is looking better every day as more flowers open. And the stem was strong enough that when TS Sebastian passed by, there were no problems.
