The last affinis


This is the latest of the Fritillaria affinis to bloom.

It's also one of the most robust, fighting it's way from under the spreading canopy of the rhododendrons.


I've offered this dwarf Iris for some years now, without a proper id on it. I got it originally from the Rae Selling Berry Botanic garden where it grew for years in the rockery in front of the house steps. A customer sent me an id of Iris sauveolans.

Spelling needs to be updated there.

Finally spring arrived 75 degrees and sunny today!

Cheers,
Mark
