Another Hybrid Tigridia

None of the tiger flowers are striped, which seems to make their name inappropriate, as already suggested; nevertheless there does seem to be something tiger-like about this richly partisoned and oriental-seeming flower. It is rather curious to reflect that the spots on the flower are intended to make it conspicuous, whereas the striped coat of its namesake is calculated to make the animal invisible in the jungle.
