Tigridia Canariensis | Buttercup Tigerflower | Peacock Flowers | Mexican Shell FlowersThese splashy blooms are native to the coastal regions of the Western Hemisphere, from Chile right up through northern Mexico. The brightly speckled, spotted and spattered flowers of the tiger flower are downright sexy and will make your summer garden sizzle. Like daylilies, each flower lasts but a single day, but again like the daylily - an abundance of blooms provides color for weeks!
Low maintenance, high drama and resistant to deer and rabbits, tigridia are exceptional in beds, borders and large containers, and mix beautifully with hardy geraniums and daylilies.
