Flower of the Day – November 10 – Yellow Ixia

Ixias grow their beautiful, simple flowers on a long thin, wirelike stem that puts them up to 80cm (30 in) above the ground. Each stem can have up to a dozen buds at a time and one plant can have multiple stems. They ‘pace’ themselves though and usually will only have a few flowers open at any one time.

I love seeing the long spikes appear near the end of Winter knowing what awaits when the first signs of the warmer weather arrives. I’m blessed to have 4 different colours of Ixia growing in my garden: this one, some white, pink-tipped ones; a pinky red one and a deep maroon one. 🙂
