Amaryllis and Tigridia duet

One would never think to mix these two plants together (although I do love pink and orange combinations), let alone mixing a summer growing Tigridia and a winter growing Amaryllis together. I think this is only possible in areas where there is a cool enough summer where the dormant Amaryllis bulbs don't rot from the water required to grow the Tigridia and where there is enough heat for the Tigridia to be happy. To top all of this off these were growing in a "dead" space of a sidewalk which badthings calls the "hell strip" underneath some nice palms! Whoever designed this deserves an award!
