Goblet Flower. This exquisite little perennial is an endangered species native to northern Uruguay along the Brazilian border. I first noticed it in the garden of Mary Alice Woodhams, a former employee and exceptional plants lady, whose home is only a mile or so from us. She did not know the identity of it, nor could she remember from where she had acquired it. It was growing along the edge of a small goldfish pond where it was being constantly splashed on by a nearby waterfall. Plant Delights Nursery reports it thriving in their sunny rock garden where it is "thriving with cacti." The leaves are pleated for their full length, and in the spring it puts up delicate branched stalks of 2 ft. which are topped with brilliant yellow three-petaled almost iris-like flowers in the spring, as well as a late bloom in late summer. The first picture is complements of Michael Chelednik.
