Let's hope it's a lot more often, Ellen, that one is really beautiful. 


I don't know how often they come up now, but in the past there was something
called the "Immaculata" strain of Tigridia pavonia which had flowers
characterized by a lack of spotting. Again, in the past, separate colors
were offered. 


Somewhere among the accumulated ephemera here I have the catalog/folder of
an outfit which once grew Tigridia pavonia in the Pacific Northwest back in
the 1940s or so - maybe Wilson Brothers or something like that. As I recall,
they had fifteen or twenty different named strains or clones of Tigridia in
various color combinations.
