Enliven your garden with The Rioja Spanish Bulb Collection. The Aztec Lily (Sprekelia formosissima) blooms first, with spectacular red petals (6-12” tall). Mexican Shell Flowers, or Tiger Flowers (Tigridia pavonia) have an exotic orchid-like pattern, and they create an extraordinary sweep of color from mid-to-late summer (12-18” tall). Tigridia’s flowers last just one day, but its continuous parade of blooms will keep you in color for several weeks. The stunning Nuit D'Ete Dahlia will deliver the final display of burgundy petals blooming from early summer to frost (36” tall). Frequent deadheading encourages the production of more blooms, and the medium green foliage is typically pest and disease free. If these bulbs are not hardy in your zone, you can grow them as annuals, grow them in containers that can be brought indoors for cold seasons, or dig up bulbs before frost to store in a cool dry place for planting the following spring. Be sure to follow the appropriate planting depth for each unique bulb. Collection of 19 bulbs.
