Info

Any cypella is delicious but this one from Peru is stunning, the three petals a deep golden yellow with red and purple markings in the center. A summer blooming bulb on stems to 18-24" tall, each flower lasts only one day but by carefully trimming the seed pods the blooming period can be extended. Requiring regular water in summer, these like to be dry in their winter dormancy, so well-drained soil is must or pot culture in full to part sun. Frost hardy in USDA zone 8 if winter dry. Hesperoxiphion peruvianum is becoming a widely accepted name for this plant, lovely by any name.

Saucy Cypella! Intricate & glowing gold, the glorious blooms of this Peruvian bulb enchant me every time Summer comes around! Each flower is ephemeral, lasting only part of a day, but if you nip the seed pods, the bloom season can extend for months. Requiring Summer water, this bulb is Winter dormant & likes a slightly drier rest, so if they’re in the ground, provide some extra drainage, or just simplify things by planting them in a pot. Grows from 1-2’ in height, & narrow, with interesting pleated leaves.
