field of color

I don't know what kind of flowers these are but  I now know that these are tiger flowers and they are quite colorful. Thanks, Marsha!

Beautiful. I believe it is a tigridia lilacea...

I'm loving the idea of zoom in/zoom out ...wonderful to see both ways. And I don't know what this beauty is. When you find out, please let us know!!!

to clarify my earlier response: The world of botanical names is confusing: the name is similar to tiger lilies but these aren't tiger lilies. These ones are tiger flowers or tigridia...I have bought them as bulbs and they are very easy to grow...
These are a tigridia but I may have been wrong about the lilacea part...the lilacea have a more spotted appearance..... but they certainly are pretty...
Tiger lilies have 6 flower petals the same size, not 3 big and 3 small...
sorry- this is my science background coming into play

Thanks for your explanation, Marsha. I probably misunderstood you but I have corrected the name.

thanks....I would hate for someone to buy some tiger lilies thinking they were getting the tigridia ...but tiger lilies are also very nice and colourful too!!

These are so lovely and a beautiful thing to see on a cloudy morning in the UK. Thank you for visiting me.
