Geissorhiza erosa

Family iridaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers deep magenta
From seed germinate at room temperature
detailed seed-starting info below

Geissorhizas are small iris relatives from southern Africa growing from a corm. I can't find much information about this species, but it appears to be endangered, with small rich-purple-pink flowers. The chances of me growing this to blooming size in Houston are close to zero, but I'll be trying. No trouble germinating the seed, anyway.

We're just trying this plant for the first time this year; it hasn't found a permanent place in our gardens yet. (click here for a full list)
