Dipcadi serotinum

Family asparagaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers tan-green (spring)
From seed germinates readily at room temperature
detailed seed-starting info below

Species from Spain, Portugal, and North Africa, where it favors hilly terrain, often found growing in rocky soil at wood's edge. Forms flowering stems with a succession of equally spaced, dangling, flared tubular flowers in a muted shade of tan-green. Not commonly grown as an ornamental, but I'll give it a try; I grew its cousin, D. viride (which has even greener flowers) a number of years ago in Pennsylvania, where it wasn't hardy. This time, I expect the plants to be hardy, but I'm unsure of their habit or gardenworthiness.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
