Phycella bicolor is native to Chile. There seems to be some disagreement about whether this is truly a separate species from P. ignea, or whether they are the same species, and I won't get into that, since it is not my area of expertise. The genus consists of five or six species native to Chile and northern Argentina. Fifteen years ago, I was given a bulb of Phycella bicolor. It was not a tiny bulb. Each year it produced leaves then died back, and I patiently waited for a flower, not knowing for sure if the bulb was correctly labeled or whether I was giving it the conditions it needed to produce a flower bud. Finally, this year, in early summer I saw a robust bud emerging. A fifteen year wait!! The stem reached about 60cm, and the umbel of beautiful scarlet and yellow flowers emerged. The picture does not do it justice, the flowers have a wonderful waxy texture and the size is dramatic. I am selling small bulbs of this species, and when I pack them up I have to hope that the recipients have unlimited patience. It will be a long wait.
