Identify please

imageThese little bulbs were grown from seeds on the top of an agapanthus africanus plant bought from a nursery. They were planted up and nurtured for a couple of years. They flower all through from September onwards and have not stopped yet. They now look as though they need splitting up. I would love to know the name of these little beauties. Can anyone identify please.?

    Ipheion uniflorum. Looks like you have a few different forms in there too.

    Ipheion is normally propagated by lifting part of a clump in late summer and separating and transplanting some of the larger bulbs elsewhere.

    I looked at the photo and was going to say the same as Berghill, then I saw Berghill's answer.

    Dordogne and Norfolk. Clay in Dordogne, sandy in Norfolk.
  • Thank you, next september I will separate and give them more room.
