Rhodohypoxis grows to 10cm and provides good spring colour. It needs well drained soil. Its flowers are either pink white or crimson in colour. pokerboy.

Lovely plant which tries to flower all summer. Hardy in Devon (UK) if given good drainage, particularly in an alpine trough. There are some double forms which are now being introduced which are interesting but not more beautiful, and usually with smaller flowers.

United Kingdom (Zone 9a) wrote:

From the Drakensburg mountains of south Africa, these tuberous-rooted little plants need a warm, sunny place in soil which does not dry out in summer. They can be grown in pots when they must be watered well when in growth and kept almost completely dry in winter. One inch flowers in shades of red, pink and white. Frost hardy if kept reasonably dry in winter.
