I don't know whether any hybids have been made with American species, but
the South African Hypoxis parvula has been crossed with Rhodohypoxis baurii
with success. The hybrids are correctly called Rhodoxis, though more
commonly are still sold as "Rhodohypoxis hybrid" or similar. The best known
ones which easily available over here in the UK are the "Hebron farm" series
which have cultivar names such as 'Hebron Farm Biscuit', 'Hebron Farm
Cerise' and 'Hebron Farn Red Eye'. I don't have pictures of any of these but
a web search will turn up a few pictures.
