New Garden Additions

These beautiful Tigridia or Tiger Flowers were a new addition to my new flower beds this season.

As bulbs I planted in the Spring, they first come up looking like an iris. There can be more than one bloom on a flower, but each bloom only lasts a day.

They are large flowers at about 4 inches across and are visible from my kitchen. It’s such a nice start ot the day to see one bloomed up on the hill in the morning. In doing a little research, I found they grow in Mexico and Chile. I am not sure if that means they will survive the winter here. Does anyone have them in their garden? Or any experience with them?

Bloom More.

    I remember my mom would dig up some bulbs every fall to keep them inside for the winter and replant them in the spring. Maybe you can do that with these? They are beautiful!

    These are so lovely! I definitely would try to take them in for the winter.
