Harlequin Flower

Sparaxis tricolor

Description:

Sword-like green stems support this very colorful flower.

Notes:

What I thought was a failed attempt at growing a plant my mom had in her garden, actually turned out to be an amazingly beautiful flower that only blooms once a year for 1-2 days. Grows from a bulb.
