Tigridia immaculata (syn. Rigidella immaculata) from high altitude forest areas of Guatemala and southern Mexico has bright orange to scarlet, pendulous flowers which seem to be self-sterile. The whole plant is rather slender and delicate. The buds completely leave the spathes the evening before flowering (pic 2), and the flowers open up quite early in the morning. The pictures by Martin Bohnet show a plant obtained from Crûg farm.
