California Golden Stars by Althytrion California Golden Stars by Althytrion
This is the wonderful Goldenstar, Bloomeria crocea, native to Southern California.:aww:

Although adapted to a much milder climate, this SoCal wildflower continuously proves to be remarkably hardy here in my garden in Germany, unless the bulb is kept too wet during winter. ;)

It reminds me a little of the agapanthus we have growing here in socal. Are they from the same family (if that is the correct term) I don't think I've ever seen these lovely starry flowers & the lighting really makes them shine. so pretty :butterfly:

I'm glad you like them, thank you very much! :hug:

Yes :nod:, they look somewhat like Agapanthus, but they aren't related to them. Agapanthus belongs to the Amaryllidaceae family (Amaryllis, Narcissus, Snowdrops) while Bloomeria were placed in a family of their own (Themidaceae) for a long time, along with Brodiaea and other Californian genera, and recently moved to Asparagaceae (=Asparagus and its relatives). ;)
