Hi I am Yolanda Vanveen on behalf of Expert Village. Tritonia is another South African flower that I just love in my garden. It grows like a crocosmia or a freesia and it is of the iris family. They call it blazing star as well sometimes and they just have little pink flowers on them that are just delightful. The bulbs of the plants are very tiny. You can barely even find them sometimes but they are just a little form and there is a side with a shooter and eye and that goes up or you can go sideways with them. You only need to plant them one or two inches deep and they are not really a big flower. They just kind of are dainty, wispy iris plant that blooms in the summer. They are not really hardy in the Northwest. Sometimes I will lose them in the winter so I usually bring them in whether they are in the ground or in the container so I enjoy them when summer comes. Next we will cap up our talk on summer blooming flower bulbs.
