SIGNA seed exchange always has something to offer in case you can't
find a commercial source for grown plants. I obtained a piece of the
variegated one and it bloomed while I was out of town this week. How
frustrating! It's the first foetidissima to bloom in my garden and I
missed it. :(
You didn't miss much. It really is an insignificant flower.... although
probably quite interesting if you're into muddy brown and mauve.
Definitely grown for the leaves not the flowers.
I finally acquired I. foetidissima this year again (had it years ago and
lost it) so I am waiting to find out what the flowers on the non-variegated
are like. Probably the same I'd hazard. Maybe I was lucky enough to buy
the citrine form that has yellow flowers? Fingers crossed.
Canberra, Australia. USDA equivalent - Zone 8
Growing.... Galanthus, Erythroniums, Fritillarias, Lilium, Aroids, Irises
plus just about anything else that doesn't move!!!!!
