Your hesperantha is a picture Fermi.
 I'm not really familiar with them.

Otto kindly gave me two oncocyclus irises two, or maybe three, seasons ago.
One is now flowering for the very first time.
Iris susiana x kirkwoodiae. Iris susiana x korolkowii

Three photos - partially and fully open.

Just a few others...

1 Iris bicapitata

2 Corydalis

3 Rhodotypos scandens - quite like Kerria japonica except white and four-petalled

Hi Jacqui,
that Iris hybrid is a stunner - but your pic is labelled differently to the text in your post - is it Iris susiana x kirkwoodiae (note the ending!) or Iris susiana x korolkowii?  ???

Here's the first flowering on Mertensia lanceolata from Alplains seeds 2018; quite a dainty thing - is it usually so small?
cheers

Looking forward to the garden fair at the Bolobek homestead in Macedon tomorrow.
Here Spring has really sprung. This year the leaves came earlier than the blossoms on many a flowering tree. Quite unusual.

1. One of the pot luck narcissus that came from a friend in Kinglake
2 and 3.  Sheba's jewel was one of two arilbreds given to me by Marcus one visit. Very striking in white with near black markings.
4. A tiny groundcover that is much hardier than it looks. I hope to remember the name eventually.
5. All three blooms on the oncocyclus are out at once. It has been such a treat.

..and a few more

6. Narcissus 'Xit'
7. Narcissus "Russell Falls" is still going strong - I think I showed it in September
8. Iris japonica 'Darjeeling'
9. Epimedium pinnatum
10. Potentilla rupestris. I accidentally disinterred it last year and it was quite sulky, but seems to be on the road to recovery

Hi Dave,
I find that amazing - here it seems to grow in heavy wet soils! The first time I saw this Moraea it was growing in a roadside ditch which probably only dried out at the peak of summer. Maybe you get more rain than we do  ;D
Here are a few more from our garden:
1) Geissorhiza splendidissima
2) Bulbinella triquetra
3) Tropaeolum tricolor
4) Erigeron trifidus - this is what I think it is - it came up in a pot I got from a friend who grows a lot of North American plants
5)  close up of the erigeron
cheers

Seems it originated in Alberta, Canada, and thought to be a hybrid between E. compositus and E. lanatus

Yes just a little bit more moisture than you guys  :o ;)
I had an idea it liked heavy wet soils but it's only been planted for a week so time will tell.
You and Jacqui have been showing some wonderful stuff so thanks for posting.
Cheers.

Some more flowers in the garden:
1 & 2) Babiana spathacea - tends to collapse and trail downwards - which has spread its seedlings far and wide!
3 & 4) Daviesia benthamii ssp humilis  Australian native "spiny bitter pea"
5) Leucocoryne ixioides grown from seed from NARGS Seedex 2009 collected in Chile
