The Tigridia bloom may only last a few hours, but they make up for it in sheer proliferation.
That’s hubby’s hand, to give you an idea of size. About the same as a star-gazer lily, or any of my black lilies.
iDJ getting artistic. He took all of these shots.
Every flower is a little bit unique.
Sometimes, the yellow ones are a bit wonky.
The red/pink ones can be wonky, too.
But usually they aren’t.
I was disappointed at first, but the unceasing blooming has certainly made up for the short shelf life. There were more today, and there will be more again tomorrow, I see the buds that are ready to open.
Wowzers indeed! Who knew? As good as orchids!
Almost! But nearly a metre tall and fragile as anything. I’m also pretty sure our Irish bees have NO idea what to do with them.
Gorgeous! Especially the yellow one that was partially unfurled. I love flower pics when they have droplets. Thumbs up on the green thumb.
They are absolutely gorgeous, I’ve never seen these before in any garden, thanks for introducing them to me! Love the magenta colour. Cath
Got them at Aldi, go figure!
Haha – I’ve bought quite a few plants from Aldi. One, a rubber plant, bought around 6 years ago, is now a nice 2 to 3 metre tree in our garden!
Actually… My roses came from Aldi, too. I’d forgotten! That rubber tree is a lucky one 🙂
Yes, it’s always hit-and-miss with supermarket bought plants – I’m lucky. You can see it on one of my recent posts (I think) of my garden in Portugal. It’s a variegated version so not so obvious at first and it’s a lollipop shape!
Oh damn, those are gorgeous!
