Hi everyone
My Ixia viridiflora has just come into flower and this has got to be one of the most beautiful flowers I have seen. When they die back do I need to lift the corms or do I leave them in the tub?

This site probably gives more information on I. viridiflora than could easily be posted here.

I agree that it is a stunning flower.

I agree too. Not many plants I know of have these turquoise flowers. The Jade vine being the only other and possible one Orchid I know of. This specimen seems to have slightly paler flowers than some.
