Fragrant Baboon Root - Babiana fragrans - Fresh Seeds

     
DESCRIPTION

Babiana fragrans - Baboon Root

You are bidding for a packet of 5 seeds.

This is a small bulbous plant much favoured as a food source by Baboons, hence the common name. From a gardening perspective, they make a charming addition to any collection or garden. This particular species has purple flowers that are sweetly scented. Grows to a maximum height of around 20 cm.

A member of the Iris family, it flowers in the Spring and has a pronounced long dormant spell in summer (a reaction to the hot and dry conditions experienced in its habitat). The flowers are followed by pods containing numerous seeds. It is likely that the plants will self seed if left to their own devices.

This species is ideal for an alpine bed, where protection from summer rains can be provided. Otherwise it can be grown in an alpine house where overhead protection is inherent in the structure enabling the plant to thrive. It may also be grown in an open potting mixture in pots and containers . Not overly hardy, it is not likely to respond well to soil temperatures below - 5 Deg C. In areas where low temperatures are the winter norm, it would be best to grow this in pots or with some protection from the frost (such as a cloche or frame). Quick and easy from seed, this may flower in the third year from seed.

Growing Instructions

I always sell seeds that I have experience of growing so the instructions provided represent 1st hand experience. These instructions may change over the course of time (as I find out more about the plants and seeds) but the details that you will be provided with, at purchase, represent the latest version. If you have any questions concerning the culture requirements of this or any other item I am selling please contact me:I will be happy to provide extra details you require.

Bidding on more than 1 item?

I will always combine shipping wherever this is possible and all auctions finishing within a SEVEN day period will qualify.  If I have not sent an invoice, please e-mail me for a combined invoice when you have finished bidding/buying, doing this will almost certainly save you money. 

Due to the varying weights of the seeds it is not possible to apply a standard discount without overcharging for the majority of cases.  Additionally I cannot apply a postal discount unless PayPal payments are combined.
