Curled flower stems

Curled flower stems

After a hot dry summer when the plant is dormant, the leaves and flowers sprout from a tuber, each on its own stem. We just found out that tips of leaf stems curl upwards, while tips of flower stems curl downwards…how amusing!

They seem to be able to grow in gravel as well as in the flower beds. ..

    • Just under the three “related” pictures is a line of “tags” Did you know that when you click on the tag that says “flowers”, you get all the Quimper Hitty flower pictures that I’ve attached that “tag” to? you could look at Hittys and flowers all day if you wanted to! They are continually getting into flowers!

  1. Lovely photos and a lovely Hitty. We do not have these flowers around here so this was very interesting. Thank you for sharing the info and the beauty.
