Re: June 2018 – My most beautiful flower

Very hard to pick one out as 'most beautiful'. Eriosyce I love for the way many have flowers that seem to glow

Agaves? In which case there are a few that are potentially hardy, depending on where in the UK they are to be grown.

A few to show. First a flower:

Then some leaves:

Then some rather different leaves - glossy in part, anyway

Re: Guess the flower!

Does look very like the flowers on my tuberosus, but I was also going by what's visible of the stems, and that tuberosus is relatively common in collections. Could of course be entirely wrong ... wouldn't be the first (or, no doubt, last) time
