Nicely done.  I hope you do not mind, but I have added some further
pictures to your Tigridia page.  I have included a closeup of Tigridia
dugesii as well as a white and red form of T. pavonia.  I have also added
images of Tigridia's multiflora and vanhouttei (My favourite.... what a
colour combination!!).  All these have flowered in my garden this last
Spring/Summer as well.

WOW.  I didn't realise they would flower so quickly.  Have you also sown in
pots?  How long do they take in comparison?  Did they germinate, grow and
flower all within the one growing season?  When did you sow them and when
did they flower.  I have a couple of Tigridia pots down, but nowhere near
the growth necessary to flower.... I'd say they would be at least another
year, perhaps more!!
