It has taken a long time for the taxonomic dust to settle after the enthusiastic plant hunting of the 19th Century in Central Asia, and yellow forms of T.linifolia were classed until recently as a separate species T. batalinii. The flower buds nestling like a jewel amongst the foliage, open in May and then rise up on 10” stems as wide sulphur yellow cups with outer petals touched with burnt orange.

Another species from the mountains of Central Asia and easy to grow, and even spread, in the open garden here. In March and April the bulbs produce several creamy white flowers with yellow centres that stay nestled amongst shiny green foliage. Although they are relatively small, around 1” across they together make a great show, particularly when opening wide on a sunny day.
