Tigridia orthantha

High elevation iris relative from Central America and Mexico, blooming from seed for the first time in our collection. The flowers only last a day each, but they are lovely.

 

It may appear over-saturated in this picture, but really this is how the flower is in person, absolutely flaming with sparkling red and orange!
