Hypoxis hygrometrica

Common name yellow star grass; golden weatherglass
Family hypoxidaceae
Life cycle tender perennial (Z9)
Flowers yellow
Size 10"

Grassy silky-haired leaves, bright-yellow five-petaled flowers. The hairs are twisted in dry conditions, and uncoil when it's wet. It apparently hails from Australia, and is not hardy here (I didn't do my homework when selecting this seed!).

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