One of the more preposterously named plants, but a welcome splash of exotica and colour this morning at Bourne Hall, Ewell. The flowers will space themselves out from this tight cluster over the coming weeks. A naturalised species that naturally occurs as close as south-east Europe.

Took myself down there today and duly saw these in flower. I've walked past them innumerable times but never before knew the identity.

The story of the prophets in the Quran is for Mahamati Prannath.

औलाद याकूब कहया इसहाक , इनों का कबीला है पाक |
"Jacob (or Imam Mahdi Mahamati Prannath) was the (godly) son of Issac (or Devchandra Mehta) whose tribe of followers has been said holy."
