Rob, > >I have included Tigridia's chiapensis , dugesii and pavonia which >have flowered in our last spring / summer. 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. http://pacificbulbsociety.org/pbswiki/index.php/… > >Incidently I sowed a pod of Tigridia pavonia into the ground last >autumn and have just had the first flower in just under 12 months. 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!!
