What a great little species, this T. ehrenbergii is. I had never heard of it before. A couple years ago I tried to order an old, rare book through Amazon, called The Tribe Tigridaceae of Mexico, or something like that. I think it was written 50~100 years ago, and it sounded like a neat book. Anyway, my fascination with Tigridia, stems from my love of Iris. (haha, "stems"...) If I grow them close enough to the house, Trigridia pavonia are winter-hardy up here in Ohio. This year I'm trying to grow some from seed. I also grow a couple types of Alophia... a genus closely related to Tigridia. At the moment I have this picture set as my desktop wallpaper background. http://badbear.com/dkramb/… Absolutely gorgeous, albeit ephemeral, flower!
