Hesperantha cucullata

Hesperantha cucullataHesperantha cucullata

This South African bulb is somewhat of a night owl. The flowers open in the late afternoon (but early enough to get to enjoy them) and are closed by morning. It blooms in early spring. The flowers have six petals, three of which have pink backs. The white and pink alternate, creating a neat pinwheel effect. The front of the flowers are all white. Grows to about 12” high.
