Babiana rubrocyanea


Babiana rubrocyanea

Blue with deep red eye. This has been waiting for a little sun so it could open all the way.

Stunning close up! Gorgeous colours there Wylie.

The petals are a bit spotty, but that is because it had been raining earlier. It is surprising that the pollen on this is red.

That's beautiful. Almost too stunning to be real.

Thanks. There are lots of buds on this, so it will be showing off for a long time.

I grew some several years back but they didn't over winter, I needed to keep them frost free and I didn't remember to bring them in.
Might get some more as they are stunning colours.

My climate is a lot like their native South Africa. Lots of sun is important to get them to open all the way.
