The Harlequin Flower (Sparaxis) blooms in early to mid summer with cheerful flowers in peach, pink, white or red and contrasting star-shaped centers.
They are perennial in zones 8 to 10 but can be planted in the spring and lifted in the fall in zones 3 to 7.
Sparaxis also grows well in containers. So you can bring the planters in to over-winter the bulbs.
Plant them 2″ to 3″ deep and 3″ to 4″ apart.
