Rhodohypoxis 'Candy Stripe'
A floriferous hybrid with good-sized pink flowers that makes a definite statement en masse - you have to like pink a lot or this is not for you. Subtly pale stripe on the midrib or keel of the petals is just a sweet bit of sugar frosting on this eye candy. Quickly makes a dense little clump with lots of late spring-early summer flowers. Similar and may be the same as 'New Look'.
Rhodohypoxis is a genus of small bulbs with dense grassy foliage and fairly large flowers for the size of the plant which are produced with exhuberance. This one of the legion of pink-tinged white selections and is a good grower given well-drained yet moist soil. Choice little rock garden subject.
Rhodohypoxis 'Hebron Farm Cerise'
Presumed hybrid between Rhodohypoxis and Hypoxis from a collection on the Hebron Farm property in South Africa. Great little rock garden plant provided it doesn't get too dry.
Rhodohypoxis 'Rosie Lee'
Easy and hardy little bulbous plant from South Africa and a good pink in this selection. This makes dense tuffets of grassy foliage in spring and summer and covers itself in May/June with pink flowers. Increases well but never a problem making an easy to divide clump when dormant.
(Out of Stock)
Big pink flowers of substance on this densely clumping South African bulb. Hardy outside here given good drainage in winter (and mulch if a bad winter) and a choice candidate for the rock garden provided it gets ample water when in growth. Easy to grow in pots and overwinter in the garage.
Flower power is the smallest of packages, this little but mighty rhizomatous yet bulbous Iris family member from South Africa brings a degree of satisfaction far beyond it's size when its short grassy foliage becomes completely obscured for weeks in late spring by rose red flowers literally cheek to cheek. Good increaser, hardy in zones 7-8.
Rhodohypoxis - White (aka Matt's White)
This is one coming out of the garden of Matt Mattus and has garnered the name 'Matt's White'. This may be a name functioning more as a placeholder for origin than a proper clonal name. It is a good doer and basically obscures the foliage when in flower so be forewarned if you like leaves with your flowers.
Rhodohypoxis baurii 'Apple Blossom'
A little densely clumping bulb with grassy leaves and a plethora of flowers of white blushing with pink shades which when it is full on can completely obscure the leaves. This likes that illusive moist but well-drained soil and is a classic little goody for the rock garden. Mulch if a severe winter.
Rhodohypoxis baurii 'Dawn'
Grassy little clumping rhizomatous bulb from South Africa which is easily grown here provided it has good drainage and moisture while in growth and a bit of mulch in winter. Dawn is a broad-petaled fairly large flowered selection in which the white flowers are just touched with pink.
Rhodohypoxis baurii 'Dulcie'
A great rock garden plant for our area where it thrives on the sun and good drainage and rewards the neglectful gardener with unearned but copious amounts of showy white flowers. If we get bitter cold in the winter, this South African wouldn't mind a wee blanky of mulch.
Rhodohypoxis baurii 'Emily Peel'
Love the Rhodohypoxis and this is one that is not that easy to find. A tidy densely clumping bulb which loves good drainage when it is dormant in the winter and ample moisture when growing. Great for the sunny rock garden with some water. Medium pink flowers aging to white.
Rhodohypoxis baurii 'Lily Jean'
Lily Jean is a demure little thing with small double flowers randomly flecked with bits of red, pink and white. Quickly increrasing to form a dense little tussock with scads of flowers. This like ample moisture when growing and very good drainage in winter when dormant. Rock garden plant. Mulch if real cold.
Rhodohypoxis baurii 'Pintado'
A floriferous hybrid Rhodohypoxis from South Africa which white flowers nicely flushed in pink. This will easily cover itself in flowers in June-July increasing quickly making a dense clump which can be divided. Your friends will expect you to be gracious unless you come up with a plausible excuse.
Rhodohypoxis baurii 'Ruth'
Small but rapidly clumping bulb from South Africa with dense grassy leaves and small white flowers produced with some say reckless abandon during summer.
Rhodohypoxis baurii 'Tetra Red'
This little gem is the result of artificially induced tetraploidy which essentially means a doubling of the chromosome count. Why should we care about something we can't see? Because like athletes abusing steroids, this is extra vigorous with larger flowers as a result. Bright cerise crimson flowers. Yum.
Little bulby plant from the Drakensberg Mts in South Africa. This is a good rock garden subject in that it likes good drainage in the winter. When growing, keep it watered reasonably and it will bloom its tail off with loads of small reddish flowers. Mulch if bitter cold in winter.
Rhodohypoxis milloides 'Damask'
Choice little bulb for the rock garden, this increases quickly to make a dense grassy tuffet of leaves with lots of pink flowers in summer. Likes moisture when it is growing and good drainage in the winter when it is dormant. You would make some points with it by mulching if quite cold.
These are such good little quasi-bulbous plants from South Africa. Likes a full sun rock gardens with good drainage. Nice summer bloomers and good increasers making dense clumps. Probably deer resistant.
x Rhodoxis 'Hebron Farm Biscuit'
Possible hybrid between Rhodohypoxis and Hypoxis collected on at Hebron Farm in South Africa although some feel this is simply a form of Rhodohypoxis parvula var. albiflora. We're going with the hybrid until someone tells us otherwise mainly because Rhodohypoxis have loose morals with no desire to practice social distancing. Small cream flowers with red centers.
x Rhodoxis 'Ruby Giant'
A super hybrid out of the UK from crossing the two related genera, Hypoxis and Rhodohypoxis. These genera occur in South Africa and are small bulbous members of the Iris family. While just a few inches tall, these are showy beyond the implied limits of their size and can cover themselves for weeks in large red flowers. Easy to grow and a fast increaser, this will become a favorite. Cold climates can be overwintered inside where cool.
