Cypella Flowers

Type of Flowers
Cypella is a genus of herbaceous, perennial and bulbous plants in the Iris family (Iridaceae). It comprises about 22 species distributed in South America, from Peru and Brazil to Northern Argentina. The genus name is likely derived from the Greek word kyphella, meaning "hollow of the ear", and alludes to the shape of the inner tepals.

Members of Cypella bear basal leaves which arise from small corms, and slender flowering stems are usually branched into several flower clusters with tightly rolled bracts. The colourful delicate blooms each have 3 long tepals like a 3-pointed star, and 3 smaller ones. They bloom in yellows, oranges and blues usually with darker brown or purplish markings.

Some species of Cypella are used as ornamental plants. They are half hardy and may survive the outdoors in cool areas if planted near a sunny wall. They will need well drained soil with full sun. They can be propagated by seeds in the spring.
