I added this photo of a Tigridia species to my web site today and I noticed
it bears a striking resemblence to Alophia drummondii.  Which made me
wonder...are these closely enough related that a hybrid might be possible?

Any comments???  I don't grow either of these flowers, and I've only ever
seen them in photographs, so It's pretty silly for me to make such a
comment.  But then when I look at these photos, they look so amazingly
similar to each other...I just can't help but wonder.
