Ixia viridiflora jade green
(Ixia viridiflora)

Turquoise blue with a twinkling black eye, this ever sought after beauty becomes ever more rare. The small crop we have has been specially grown for us. Brilliant as a cut flower and No 1 in Holland. We've been fortunate in obtaining seed of this most spectacular plant which is one of the most expensive florist flowers. Ideal for cutting and showing and possibly best grown in an 8" pot during the summer plunged beneath bark or similar material and then brought indoors during the winter. Desirable and almost hardy. 18"-2'.
