(MEXICAN SHELL FLOWER) Exotic cormous perennial from Mexico. Flowers are LARGE (3-6”) for the 18-20” stems, mixed colors with three wide splayed petals, and a sunken goblet center with a frenzy of dark freckles. For a hot sunny spot with good drainage, moist to dryish. Blooms mid to late summer for several weeks, each flower lasting only a day. Corms offset and clumps get bigger every year. Planting among other plants and low growing shrubs helps support to the somewhat wimpy stems. Drought tolerant, deer and rabbit resistant. Also performs well in pots.
