(Dutch Iris)

Named for the Holland growers who originally hybridized them, the bright flowers of Dutch iris arise on slender stems in spring amid narrow, reedlike foliage. The sturdy, graceful blossoms are comprised of three upright standards and three downward-curving falls, which are usually marked with a bright yellow blotch. Appearing in numerous shades and combinations of blue, purple, yellow, white, bronze, mauve and orange, these colorful iris make excellent, long-lasting cut flowers.

(Spanish Iris)

A parent of the so-called Dutch hybrids, this tall bulbous iris actually hails from the western Mediterranean.

Arising in spring on knee-high "stems," its blooms have three typically blue or violet, arching, petal-like falls, alternating with three upright, slender, paddle-shaped standards. Three petal-like style arms overtop the falls, extending half their length. A broad orange-yellow patch extends much of the length of each fall. Linear leaves emerge before the flowers. The plant grows from...

(Wild Hyacinth)

Native to the biologically diverse Cape region of South Africa, the Cape Cowslip is valued for its easy-to-grow habit and spikes of sweetly fragrant, whitish blooms. Lachenalia is a genus of bulb-forming tender perennials adapted to grasslands, rocky sites and a climate with dry summers and wet winters.

From late winter to spring, spikes of small but showy blooms rise above rosettes of slender foliage and short stems, both of which may be spotted. Plants form clumps over time. The...

(Lapeirousia, Long-tube Iris)

This genus comprises between 35 and 40 species of herbaceous perennials that grow from bulb-like underground corms. Some taxonomists place species into three or four other closely related genera (such as Ixia), leaving less than 20 species still in Lapeirousia. The species are most concentrated in southwestern sub-Saharan Africa, but Lapeirousia exists from Nigeria to Ethiopia southward to the tip of the continent. They are particularly unique in that they are more widespread...

(Double Long-tube Iris, Lapeirousia)

With long, wispy flowers, double long-tube iris has a growth habit, color profile and visual texture much like that of whirling butterflies (Gaura lindheimeri). Native to the fynbos (coastal shrub habitat) of western South Africa, this herbaceous perennial naturally dies back each year, with a dormancy during the dry season. In its natural range, the Mediterranean climate provides the drought during the heat of summer.

The small, linear and ribbed leaves emerge from the bell-shaped underground...

(Clustered Long-tube Iris, Lapeirousia)

A beautiful African wildflower that grows from a bulb-like corm, Lapeirousia corymbosa blooms anytime from winter to spring, bearing flat clusters of star-shaped dark blue to rosy pink blossoms. Also called cluster-blooming long-tube iris, it's native to the sandy and granitic slopes across the western cape of South Africa. This herbaceous perennial naturally dies back each year, with a dormancy during the dry season. In its natural range, the Mediterranean climate provides the drought...

(Jacquin's Long-tube Iris, Lapeirousia)

A small African wildflower that grows from a bulb-like corm, Lapeirousia corymbosa blooms from late winter to early spring, bearing small, tubular, purple-violet blossoms. Also called Jacquin's long-tube iris, it's native to the limestone sands in South Africa's Western Cape. This herbaceous perennial naturally dies back each year, with a dormancy during the dry season. In its natural range, the Mediterranean climate provides the drought during the heat of summer.

(Lapeirousia, Pyramidal Long-tube Iris)

A cute African wildflower that grows from a bulb-like corm, Lapeirousia pyramidalis blooms from late winter to early spring, bearing small, tubular, white or violet-purple blossoms. Also called the pyramidal long-tube iris, it's native to the porous soils in the more arid parts of South Africa's Western Cape. This herbaceous perennial naturally dies back each year, with a dormancy during the hot summer dry season.
