Vagaria (Pancratium) parviflora have started blooming at the Jerusalem Botanical Gardens and in nature. A real joy after a long - dry summer.

They are so beautiful.  I would love to see the Jerusalem Botanical garden...I have Pancratium maritimum but they haven't flowered yet.  Some have leaves, I am a bit worried as I think those wont flower...or do you know different?  Have you had any rain this summer?

You are most welcome...
No rain this summer.
If your plants are planted in a sunny place, drained soil in Mediterranean climate, they will bloom.

A fresh report from today: Vagaria parviflora and Urginea maritima started to flower near the monastery of Latrun on the way to Jerusalem. Vagaria parviflora is growing between rocks in half-shade.

Thanks Hans  ;)

Alberto, the Vagarias in the second photo grow in a narrow gap between two large rocks...not cultivated.
However, in the garden of the monastery, they cultivated and planted some Vagaria parviflora and Urginea maritima (see photo).

Finally first flowers also here  - wondering they start about two weeks later than in Israel where it might be drier than the Balearic Islands.
