Calydorea amabilis

Calydorea amabilis

Family iridaceae
Life cycle perennial (hardiness?)
Flowers violet-blue
Light part-full shade

Iris-like species from South America, where it grows along streambanks – preferring rich moist soil. I've found no indication as to hardiness. The flowers feature narrow curvy petals with some speckling. The plants I had started in spring put up a few blooms by early October of that same year.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
