Comparison of living plants showed that several different and well separable morphotypes were involved under name Allium akaka. True Allium akaka growth in historical Iranian province Gilan, and are characterized by whitish or pinkish, ovate-elliptic, obtuse (but with plicate apex) tepals remaining straight also after anthesis, short filaments without coloured upper part.

Although something similar to Allium nevskianum both species are easy separable - after anthesis the tepals of A. alexeianum become stiff and prickly, and those of A. nevskianum remain soft becoming only crumbled. True A. alexeianum growth on central parts of Turkestan and Zaravshan mountain ranges and our stock was collected on very hard clay ground at Zaamin.

Large umbels of lavender-pink to pale rose-violet, green-veined, perianths are presented on 5-10 cm scapes, with two broad, prostrate leaves twisting around their base. The entire inflorescence breaks off at maturity dispersing the seed as it is blown over the soil surface. A noticeable carnation fragrance permeates the air, if you avoid touching the foliage.

This form markedly differs from existing stocks in having bright reddish purple flowers in a large umbel up to 20 cm in diameter on a 20-30 (!) cm long stem, which raises the flower head well above the leaves. A true gem named by Janis in honour of his friend Henrik Zetterlund as subsp. henrikii but DNA showed very minor differences from typical karataviense, so name was changed to cultivar level. From Tovaksai, the Karzhantau mnt. range, E of Tashkent.

A Californian species similar to A. anceps and A. platycaule. The most obvious difference is the habitat - vernally moist, rocky clay flats. Petals are broader and flowers composed in 5 cm umbels on 10 cm scapes. Their colour ranges from palest pink to pale violet, with rose pink dominating. Unlike its relatives the heads do not break off in order to disperse the seed

Narrowly linear leaves, a first prostrate and later ascending, thin scape, and large flowers showing a very specific broad shape of tepals characterize this small species. Allium oreophilum is a very variable species concerning stature of the plants, shape and colour of leaf. Flowers generally are very bright reddish purple, although between my seedlings rarely appear individuals with very soft light pink flower colour. Flowers tested as food had a very pleasant taste and were useful as spice.

This Allium appeared among seedlings of A. nevskianum in the garden of E. Dambrauskas. Irrespective of the name, R. Fritsch found that the other parent was A. sarawschanicum.

Very different from my A. x nevsar.

This beautiful and very easy growable Allium arose from A.nevskianum in the private garden of Reinhard Fritsch. Unfortunately it was impossible to trace the pollen parent and it is practically sterile. Sometimes were got few seeds but they never germinate. It is compensated by excellent increasing rate by bulb splitting. Inflorescence can be more dense than on attached picture. It is medium sized by length of scape, but still sufficiently good for pot as well as for rockery and ornamental bed. 15,-

This year we again offer new fully double varieties raised by our Estonian friend Taavi Tuulik, who found them in the wild on Hiiumaa Island after the Chernobyl disaster. They all are nice, fully double and well separable from one another by the flower shape, blooming time, and foliage. Most are offered for the first time and only by us. It is not easy to describe the shape of the flowers, but the pictures show you everything - and you can see that each variety is different be it doubling, the shape of the petals etc., therefore the descriptions are short.

The first samples of this very widely in Central Asia distributed species were introduced in West Europe from Afganistan. It was grown and distributed by Willem van Eeden, but then suddenly in one winter he lost all his stock - was it some disease or nematode (most likely) invasion, I don’t know, but plants which I baught from him some years earlier still are growing with me. They has larger and darker yellow flowers, than those from former Central Asian Republics of USSR.

From gardeners standpoint all bulbous Corydalis can be divided into two large groups: woodlanders and steppelanders. Woodland species prefer peaty soil which never dries out completely and a light shade. They must be planted as soon as possible. If tubers look overdried, we recommend you to soak them in water for several hours before planting. Eastern woodlanders from Siberia, Far East, China are more susceptible to drying out than western woodlanders from Europe, Caucasus, Turkey (marked here by a). Corydalis solida cultivars (marked here by b), belong to same "a" group. Steppelanders or ‘bulb-belt’ species generally are sun-lovers and need dryer summer conditions (marked with c). We harvest them annually and keep out of soil in a bulb shed.

Crocus clusii belongs to a group of three closely related autumn-blooming species from the western corner of the genus range. B. Mathew regarded them as subspecies of C. serotinus, but morphologically they are sufficiently distinct to be considered as different species. C. clusii replaces C. serotinus to the north of the Lisbon area and in north-west and south-west Spain as far as Cádiz. Although the areas of both species overlap, they can be distinguished by the much more finely netted tunics in C. clusii. It is also leafier and produces 4 to 7 leaves per corm.

This crocus now became very popular, but I’m very doubtful - is it pure mathewii? Its anthers are white and sterile, never makes pollens, so most likely it is hybrid with some other related species, although by colour looks inseparable from lilac forms of Crocus mathewii. It well increases by corm splitting, but never set seeds with me. I more like C. mathewii as it was originally published - with white base colour of flowers.

This is a very nice crocus, blooming with moderately large flowers that are carried on comparatively long tubes. Quite often the outer segments open wider than the inner ones. It is a good grower in the greenhouse, well multiplies by corm splitting and sets seed readily, although hand pollination is essential for two reasons – firstly, the species blooms here late when natural pollinators for the most part are absent, and secondly, in milder climates it easily hybridises with other species. Not difficult but must be kept somewhat cooler in summer than its relatives.
