When you say 'winter' displays, which month are you thinking of?

Perhaps some crocuses, Iris sibirica or spring flowering small cyclamen.
Hyacinths can be brought on early, and maybe narcissus.

There are not many things you could grow from seed now to flower before March. There might be some early vegetables that would add to a show.

Is the 'cover' you have heated, or does it have extra lighting?

Hi Rebecca, That is great news you were able to narrow it down.

We have Iris sibirica 'Tropic Night' here.

We don't have the other one Iris sibirica 'Dreaming Yellow'. If you want us to add it for you, please use this plant request form..

Having emailed the Botanical Gardens explaining where the plant was located etc. They said it was either Iris sibirica 'Dreaming Yellow' (yellow flowered) )or Iris sibirica 'Tropic Night' (blue flowered) but because it isn't in flower it is hard to tell exactly which one it is.
