I enjoyed last years Sonatini thread so much and I have some blooming and more to come so I thought I'll start a new one. Please feel free to post your Sonatini pictures here!
I start with a rebloomer - cute little Pink Rascal. The pot with the bulb was completely frozen when I took it from my balcony but leaves and stalk sprouted very soon in the warm room.
This year I got the opportunity to order some prerelease bulbs from the breeder. First to flower was labeled #1820 but according to Mr. Barnhoorn it is rather #1807. It is very difficult to capture the color, it's a very deep and dark magenta, almost purple, darker than in the picture. It's gorgeous! It shall be a variegated variety but it has no leaves yet so I can't confirm :-)
Next is #163, a double Cybister cross. I'm not so much into doubles but I like this one because the flowers look very elegant and delicate.
The two together. The bulbs and the flowers are very small, bulbs golf ball sized or even smaller, flower diameter 9 cm/3,5 inch. Did you order some Sonatini, Fred? :-)))
The color of the magenta one is rather that of the blooms facing sidewards. There is absolutely no red in it. I also have a scape on the bulb that was labeled #1807 and it looks quite different. I wonder whether this will be the real #1820 or something completely different...
I hope that some people on the list got the same varieties or different Sonatinis and post pictures of their blooms here!
