FOTD – October 13 – Lined Tritonia ‘rose lace’ (Tritonia gladiolarus)

It’s easy to see why this delicately drawn species of Tritonia goes by the name ‘Lined Tritonia’, and not hard to understand it’s hybrid name – rose lace. 🙂

Several flowers grow upon a single long, thin, wiry stem that is often unable to support their combined weight, and i sometimes have to lift them up and rest them on other plants for support when i take their picture. 😉

Cee’s Flower of the Day – October 13, 2019 – Autumn leaf





    • Up close it is one of my most beautiful! 🙂

      I’m not really sure where it came from – it just ‘appeared’ hiding under my Star Jasmine vine one year and comes up with 5-10 stalks that can have up to 8 flowers on each. The stalks can reach around 15 inches in length but are like wires and the flowers lie on the ground or the small plants that grow around them. 🙂
