Tigridia pavoniana can withstand both wet Winters and wet Summers in the
ground in Britain - (zone 7 or 8), as well as prolonged freezing
conditions. I know of some CORMS planted many years ago, against a wall and
shelterd by a cherry tree, which flower about every second year.. I would
not say that they do well, but they can survive winter moisture....
Tigridias have corms not bulbs. if you half one, and half a dutch (or
reticulata) Iris bulb  you will see the difference. Use a Crocosmia or
Gladiolus corm if you cant spare a Tigridia
