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?
