11/09/19 - ooo a yellow one, last three to open had been red! Might label this one up and separate it off later in the year 😍💛 #tigridia #tigridia-pavonia #tigridiapavonia #mexicanshellflower #yellow

Thanks Pearl 😊, they need a bit of staking but mine are probably about 60-70cm tall. They look like gladioli leaves, if that’s a good comparison perhaps 🤔👍🏼 @fuschia

I think I can spare a red one for you Julie 👍🏼 - I’ve labelled each stem so when the foliage dies back I’ll lift them for you. Might buy another pack next year, was hoping for a white one (I think they come in white too don’t they?) - also letting them go to seed as thought I’d give that a go @vec

04/08/19 - last past tonight, so sorry for spamming your feeds this evening, I just have a lot of missing plants I’d like to add. I’ll leave you with this glorious looking #tigridia flower, in red! I’ve marked the stem and maybe I’ll transplant this to a separate pot. Hopefully I’ll have a few more buds soon. Good night everyone 👋🏼😴 #tigridia-pavonia #tigridiapavonia #mexicanshellflower
