Habranthus tubispathus

I've grown this Habranthus from seed, so I'm particularly pleased to see it finally in bloom. It has taken two years for it to reach blooming size and I'm happy to see several other flower spikes emerging out of the soil.

Interesting to see that an earlier flower has set seed, I must get a picture of it.

Gorgeous! Growing plants from seeds is a slow but rewarding process.

Hi Aaron, Glad you like theses flowers. Unfortunately I missed the blooming of two other flowers when I was away on vacation. However happy to see that the flowers were pollinated and have set seed.

I should also mention to my Malaysian friends that Habranthus is related to Zephranthes ( Rain Lilies) that are common garden flowers in your part of the world.
