Packet of 5 seeds.

This is a partly hardy bulbous plant from South Africa. From the winter rainfall area, this grows up to 2 metres tall. Prefers sandy or granite based soil and is tolerant of damp conditions. The flowers are a stunning cerise pink and are borne in two rows of tall upright spikes, however, they differ from the other members of the group in one key area. The flowers show radial symmetry unlike the other members of the group . Coming from the mountainous areas of the Cape, it is generally found in areas up to 5000 feet above sea level.

A member of the crocus family, it is hardy down to around - 8 C, so would need some form of protection in areas subject to temperatures lower than this.

Quick and easy from seed it may flower in it's 3rd year. Rapidly dividing it will quickly cover a large area and the offset corms can be used for propagation.
