A very interesting looking Massonia Rimmer.
Do you grow all of your winter-growing S. A. bulbs under artificial lighting?

Gladiolus lillaceous - these were taken across a few hours. The flowers are supposed to be getting darker (a bit?) - they definitely smelled stronger and sweeter as it got darker
