The official name is Ixia Paniculata Eos. Ixia comes from the Greek word for mistletoe; the connection may be the sticky substance in the bulb. Paniculata means growing in a plume shape, and Eos is the goddess of dawn.Ixia is native of the Western part of the Cape. The flowers grow in loose clusters with star-shaped petals in a particular creamy light apricot colour.
Up to 15 sweet-smelling flowers grow on one stalk. The flowers close for the night and stay closed in dark weather. Ixia Eos loves well-drained soil in a border or pot in a sunny place. A cheerful little flower, in the garden as well as in a vase.
