彼岸花 – Higanbana


彼岸花 – Higanbana2

Originally uploaded by SOFennell

I’ve been wanting to add some to my garden for some time now. I finally did it – ordered a dozen bulbs this spring. I planted them in various places – testing out locations – even in pots. One bloomed this year. Apparently, it may take a year – so maybe more of a show next year.

In any case, it bloomed after the equinox, late in September. It doesn’t matter, I’m just so glad it made an appearance.

    I planted several bulbs years ago and was disappointed when they didn’t grow (I’d been warned they were difficult) this year 2 appeared and are in bloom now! go figure.

      Well, I was surprised too at my lack of blooms this year – disappointed, actually, like you. After the fact, I went and researched them
      (again). I found that it takes a year to “get settled” so can’t wait for next fall. I have some in pots though, I’m thinking I should probably get
      them in the ground very soon.
