(aka: Hypoxis nitida) Hypoxis iridifolia is one of many delightful garden-worthy stargrasses native to South Africa. After growing Hypoxis iridifolia for nearly a decade, we finally got around to propagating a few to share. The vase-shaped clump of 30" long, fondle-worthy soft, white, hairy recurving green leaves compose a unique 18" tall, 3-sided clump. The 18" tall flower spike, which ends in large, bright yellow, star-shaped flowers, adorns the clump starting in early June. Hypoxis iridifolia prefers well-drained soils, especially in the winter months.
