Details

Harlequin Flower Mix (Sparaxis tricolor) welcomes summer with a jewel tone display of colorful flowers. In shades of lavender, red, orange, white and yellow, the throats are bright yellow etched in black, giving it its common name. Also known as Wandflower, Harlequin Flowers are grown from corms, and each corm produces loose spikes of up to 5 star-shaped 2" flowers. A South African native, it’s hardy in zones 9-10 and 7-8 with some winter protection. It naturalizes well and will spread over the years to form a richly colored mat. In cooler zones, many grow it as an annual, or lift the corms and save in a frost-free place. Happy in full sun, plant it along borders, in a rock garden, or anyplace its bright, unusual flowers can be appreciated. Drought tolerant, water freely during flower growth, but it’s not fussy and will do well with minimal care. Sparaxis flowers make lovely cut flowers as well. After flowering, cut back stems and let the foliage die back naturally. 6-12" tall x 3-5" wide.

Planting Guides

Summer Blooming Bulbs, including popular varieties such as gladiolus and dahlias, are planted in the spring and bloom in the summer. Most of these bulbs are tropical and require warm weather to be planted. There must not be any danger of frost and your ground temperature must have reached 55 degrees Fahrenheit before planting. Many of our summer blooming bulbs can be planted as perennials in zones 9-10 (zone 8 if mulched), but should be treated as annuals in cooler climates. You can lift them and store them in the fall, or bring patio pots inside before frost. See page 15 of our Planting Guide for a bulb depth planting illustration.

Q & A

Suggested Companion Plants:

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
