A = Difficult to say
B = correct - finally I am having one at home!
C = You have to tell me if red or blue flower !!
D = Correct
E = Lotus spp accepted at this stage, we need the flower to distingusih
X = ??
Y = Are you sure? Flowering is nearly over for Colchicum - this have not flowered yet!
Z = Maybe difficult at this stage, but I have an opinion.
Can Mesembryanthemum cristallinum be grown as a perennial if moderately watered in summer?. I really adore this plant, grown from seed (1 from about 40 seeds!) Hope it would not mind a transplant!
I managed to identify C = Anagallis arvensis,
D = I think is Arisarum vulgare
E is a Lotus sp.
Y = might be an orchid
Z = Compositae
The rest I will wait till they flower, then I will tell you! (maybe)
However at this stage of the Gov legislation (with increased fuel and elec bills) I do not get surprised if both get red next Spring!
There is also Bellis annua growing up, but I think they miss the train for the flowering period.
Z was thinking of Bellis sylvestris ??
Y was thinking of Scilla sicula ???
What are your comments regards my guesses?
Y: I don`t think so, I would confirm Colchicum cupani, in the center you can see small brown-purplish fruits, characteristic for the genus...
There is (as far as I may recognize) Ranunculus bullatus between Y & Z...
That brown purple centre was some soil. I clened the plant and it has nothing at the centre. The leaves seam to have 3 longitudinal folds, maybe not visible in the photo) and grown to 5cm in length.

Scilla sicula (because leaves are small) or a baby Scilla maritima (Urginea maritima) grown from a seed. Dont think it is Colchicium. Orchids?? I wish but lets put our feet to the ground
- How much I like this Anagallis arvensis plant. Plenty of blue flowers. Both plants are blue!

- This grown up plants with linear leaves up to 20cm reveal to us that they are not Romulea... Juncus spp. maybe?

The leaves and most of the plant have dried but the scape is still green with a small bud as seen in the photo below. Since being a late flowering (assumingly Alium) I was thinking about A. parciflorum.
Any ideas guys ?
