Cypella herbertii

Cypella herbertii 09

Cypella herberti or goblet flower forms clumps of narrow pleated foliage to 18” producing many three-petaled, golden flowers over a long season. Each of these unique and beautiful flowers is shortlived but are produced in rapid succession.  Grow in sun to part shade in well-drained soil. So. America  Hardy to 25 degrees F. For this reason, we grow them in containers which we allow to go dry and store in a cool, frostfree location in winter.  Really striking! Iridaceae
