A charming and highly variable little tulip from western Asia, this hardy bulbous perennial produces rounded pink, red, or purplish flowers on ankle-high stems. The early spring blooms open wide in sun to display yellow or black centers. They are borne one to three per stem above channeled, lance-shaped, olive-green leaves. The petals may have gray-tinged exteriors and white or yellow margins. A green seedpod follows the flowers, withering away with the leaves by late spring.

The genus Watsonia encompasses some 52 species of tender herbaceous perennials, many of them prized for their showy flower spikes and handsome iris-like foliage. Endemic to southern Africa, Watsonia includes 33 species from winter rainfall areas of the Cape of Good Hope, and 19 from summer-rainfall regions to the Cape's north.

These members of the Iris family produce clumps of sword-shaped leaves that arise from spherical, underground corms with coarse-fibered coverings ("tunics")....
