Hypoxis parvula var. albiflora

Archive entry 28.05.17

17th June 2012

A strange South African variety, not for its foliage or behaviour but for being one of only two white flowered plants in a genus where the other 90 (or so) are yellow. The typical variety of H.parvula is also yellow.
Grows and behaves exactly like a Rhodohypoxis, which do white rather well, so the only significant difference is that the reproductive parts are visible, unlike Rhodohypoxis which imitate Action Man (who has a slight bulge but no underlying definition, for those who haven't peeked).
