When I was in Holland in August of 2002 there was a field of tigridia at the end of the road that Hotel de Nachtegaal was on. Flowering beautifully. They were all chopped down and harvested not even a week after I arrived. There was a nice display of them at the Floriade also. Has anyone grown them? Not that I'm planning on growing them here in New Jersey. But I'm writing them up for my book, and just realized that none of the California, Texas, New Mexico "bulbs I am growing/ have grown" messages make any mention of this extravagant, showy, Mexican flower. And I would have thought it would be suitable. There was a field of soft yellow homeria, and another of peachy orange ones within walking distance of the hotel too. Judy in New Jersey, where today is a break in the rain before the hurricane and its weather arrives. I'll take advantage and plant more bulbs.
