On the left side an arrangement of everything that’s flowering today! On top you see two of the blooms side by side. The light flower is a Neomarica caerulea Hybride (left). The form of the flowering stem and the fact, that it doesn’t make plantlets, makes it caerulea – the petal color is white with bluish dots. The brown pattern inside resembles caerulea blooms. Either is it a spontaneous mutation or someone wished more diversity in his food!

Still unknown Species, blooming for the first time!
The tip of the inflorescence is so short that it ends under the flower.
Even the stylus are blue!
Even the smallest competes in beauty!
As if this plant wishes to prove that I was wrong – this was it today:
I hope, that there will be more than one flower and a plantlet afterwards too!
The first plant to produce a flowering stem is a Neomarica sabini ‘Jaguare’ from the 2010 seeds.
I hope this will become a flower – the plant is rather weak, only three leaves which look more yellow than green.
The other Neomaricas are not yet so far, but I keep them ‘sleeping’ because I wish them flowering next year, when I’ll go on markets – I have to get rid of a good part of my stock, and flowering plants are much easier to sell.
In this blog I wish to publish the events of every day – observations, experiments, plant development. Mostly small things, but perhaps of interest for other friends of these wonderful plants. I hope you’ll enjoy it.
At the moment I have 180 Neomaricas in my house, a lot of them of unknown species. So there will be enough to report in the next years.
