Fiesta time! - Intriguing flowers from Mexico. Tigridia highlight the mid-summer garden with bright colors and distinctive form - three wide, pointed petals surrounding a spotted button center. Like daylilies, the flowers open in succession over several weeks, each bloom lasting just a day, replaced with fresh blooms the next.
We planted this variety for our spring garden 2017 here in San Antonio, Texas. A lot of our cantaloupes started out with a pronounced curve on the flower end and going for about 2 inches. The flesh was sweet but on the curved part there was no flesh to eat. What caused this? Mary W.
