Wierd hairy dahlia shoots

I think roots would go down even if planted upside down. Could it be some kind of fungal growth?

I hope he's chosen from the native range, it would seem more appropriate to the situation.

Yes - too early nut - I'd forgotten that.

They look like the ones that are a cross between the natives and the Spanish ones. Or did you mean just Hyacinths? They look a bit 'bare', if you know what I mean

Looks like  hyacinths to me. Right time of year as well, a bit early for English bluebells

What sort are they?

I thought Zantedeschia came from Africa. With a name like Zantedeschia aethiopica it does hint at such origins

I think you're in the right area Melspad, it's not a field/opium/Welsh poppy. I don't think I'd go as far as deciding single/double/semi-double yet

I'd have to have some Flag irises and some cuckoo flower, ragged robins and snakes head fritillaries in grass
