Makes a clump of sword-shaped leaves to 1 ft. high and wide. Blooms over a long period in late spring; 1 1/2 -ft.-tall flowering stems bear loose, spike-like clusters of small, funnel-shaped blossoms to 2 in. across. Each flower has a yellow center, a dark color surrounding this, and another color—red, pink, orange, or purple—on the rest of the petals. Looks best when naturalized or grouped as accent in border, along pathway. For planting and culture, see Ixia (to which Sparaxis is closely related).
