Hi Judy:

I grow some of the Mexican Tigridias, Tigridia multiflora, T. chrysantha, T.
dugesii and T. durangense.   These are all small plants, but some have large
flowers.  They look wonderful massed in a small pot.  I grow them outside in
this cool coastal climate, and they do very well, although I generally try
to protect them from winter rain when they are dormant.
