I just found this neglected pot behind some Lillie’s. After cleaning out the grass and sunflower seedlings (thanks blue tits for chucking around the seed!). I assume they are bulbs but for the life of me don’t remember planting them. Any ideas what they are and what colour they will be? Lovely delicate tall fine leaves and flower spikes.

    They might be Ixias, but that really is a total guess !

    Thanks AnniD guess I will just have to wait and see when the buds open.

    So these opened today this is what I got. Pretty but the weight of the flowers has meant they needed supporting. I guess they should really be grown amongst other plants for support? Are they what you thought AnniD?
