Description

Tigridia pavonia 'Speciosa' is a selected cultivar of Tigridia pavonia, Mexican Tiger Flower. A member of the Iris family, it has tall-growing linear-like foliage and extraordinary red flowers. Each flower has three broad petals surrounding a circular structure with yellow and some white markings. The overall effect is extremely exotic and an utter delight to the eye.

Tigridia pavonia 'Speciosa' flowers from mid-summer with each flower typically lasting a day or on occasion two days with a succession of flowers following throughout the summer.
