Asphodeline taurica

Asphodeline taurica
As much a foliage plant as one grown for its flowers. The plant makes very eye-catching rosettes of extremely narrow pale grey leaves, complemented by a spike of slightly rosy white flowers in late spring. 
Asphodeline taurica
A very tasteful species needing excellent drainage and full sun.

Herbertia lahue

Herbertia lahue
A gorgeous little summer flowering Iris relative producing attractively marked violet flowers on short stems just above the ground. Although this is widely distributed in the USA it’s of doubtful hardiness and may need protection, but I recommend trying it in short turf – a technique that works remarkably well with many ‘tender’ bulbs
