H. Reticulatum question

kaboehm (zone 9a, TX USA)August 22, 2012

After falling to peer pressure (YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!) I bought some H. Reticulatum from a good source. They are thriving and have grown from 2 leaves to 4 and I would say nearly doubled in height. What is considered blooming size?

Thanks!

Kristi,

They bloom from bulbs the size of a large egg in my experience. It is typically a shy bloomer but so very rewarding when it does.

H reticulatum is a fall bloomer in its native habitat, it detests cold weather and will rot fairly quickly. It's another winter growing species. H. reticulatum is also thought to be resistant to Mosaic Virus.
