 Check here, and look at the details of H. sessilis, rigida, and wrightii. Those would be your likely candidates for the habitat.

Hi All,


Just down the road from me is a small bog and I went this past week and took some pictures of various items. I saw some seed pods of a Hypoxis species. I harvested about 20 seed or so before I started to hurt and had to go. Yesterday I thought I would go down and try and get a few more seed for the BX but when I arrived mowers had mowed the bog and the bog was nothing but ruts from tractor tire tracks. Any ground that was not a rut was covered and 2 to 3 inches of mud that had been pushed up and fallen over from the tires. 


I ran my fingers through quite a lot of the churned up mud to find several of the hypoxis bulbs. I was wondering if anyone knew of a hypoxis species that grew in bogs. None of my Texas flower books have any Hypoxis but H. hirsuta and I would guess that this is not H. hirsuta.
