Sternbergia should flower  in autumn then get leaves. Mine have been considering the idea for many years.

I expect any daffs I buy to flower the first year Martyn.

I agree they come through when they're ready. Any ideas we have about timing are ignored

They die back in winter, I should think they're ok

(I assume you mean Crocosmia 'Lucifer', if not, ignore my comment)

Perhaps a Survey worth doing...

It must be hard to phrase the questions to avoid any misunderstanding.

Not much of mine floods but enough to answer 'yes'

Strictly speaking Carex is a sedge, newme.

Some of speak strictly, others are happy to call ophthiopogon a grass

Hello newme, are you new or have you had a name change?


Later edit, I've worked it out now

Not sure about settle Charley, mine have grown in leaf but diminished in flower.

A friend grows a variety he says is angustiflola which, (for him) is free flowering

Hi Panda, good to 'see' you.

Those sternbergias need a summer baking they won't get there

 but it probably doesn't matter too much. There are dozens out there and they rarely flower wherever they are.

See you in the summer, I'm already thinking about next season's trips.

Though some leaves have appearied in a woodland spot, About 7inches tall and looking worryingly like Sternbergias
