Mexican Shellflower Tigridia Mixed


Tigridia is a thing of exotic beauty! Each one lasts for only a day, but a succession appears over several weeks at the end of summer. The upright leaves are pleated and each stem bears several blooms. For earlier blooms you can start them in compost-filled pots in spring and then plant out in June.
