This is the first time I have seen Herbertia. I was able to learn that Herbertia is a perennial plant in the Iris family.

I keep a Herbertia lahue ssp Lahue as a pot plant.
I overwinter it in the garage as it's not hardy in my parts.
Very pretty blooms

For some reason it is everywhere this year. The pastures are covered, and the white-footed animals now have purple pollen covered feet.

These are lovely!! Are y'all saying each bloom lasts for only about 6 hours on 1 day?
