That is a gorgeous photo of Tigridia pavonia.  I've never seen a Tigridia with a color quite like it.  Could it be a hybrid?  Or is it definitely full T. pavonia?  Was it a random occurrence or were you trying to develop something like that?

I'm jealous to hear you have Rigidella orthantha.  I just found a place that has it for sale and purchased one.  It should arrive in a couple weeks.

Hi  all,<br><br>I  have  uploaded a couple  of  images  to the  wiki  which  are  <br>approaching  orange  in  colour.<br><br>The  first  is   Tigridia pavonia  a  self  tangerine colour.  I  <br>wanted  some  red T pavonia's  so  selected  some  seed  from a  nice  <br>red flower in a  friends  garden. From this  seed pod  I  have  had  <br>some reds  with a pale  centre as  well as  self  yellows  and this  <br>flower.<br><br>Last year  I  crossed Tigridia  pavonia  with the  plant  formerly <br>known  as Rigidella orthantha (now  Tigridia) and  harvested  2  seeds <br>which  have  both germinated. I hope  there might be a  self red <br>Tigridia in the  offspring.<br><br>…<br><br>My  flower of  Lycoris sanguinea  is  more burnt orange  or apricot <br>than the blood  colour its  name  suggests.<br><br>…<br><br>The  cultural  discussions on this  forum  have  helped  me greatly <br>with this  genus  with flowers  the obvious  reward. I  have   posted <br>an image  of  Lycoris incarnata which  together  with  L  sanguinea  is <br>  flowering for the first  time after  quite a  few  years in my <br>posession.<br><br>…<br><br>Cheers,<br><br>Rob in Tasmania<br><br><br><br>_______________________________________________<br>pbs mailing list<br><br><br>
