Sparaxis, or the Harlequin Flower, is a big favorite in California, where it adds incredible color to gardens. The flowers form on thin stems which sometimes need support, so you might plant them alongside stronger short plants so they can thread up through before they bloom. This is yet another South African bulb that brings stunning color to our gardens.
