This exotic-looking beautiful flower opens in a quite unusual shade of french mustard! The individual flowers open for just a day or so, and then another flower opens on the same stem, making a long display as long as buds are produced. These plants will perform well in dryish warm screes but excel themselves in a container when they can multiply up. In the wild they are found from S. Brazil to N.E. Argentina. Few seeds collected.
Sowing advice: Seeds may be sown at any time of the year onto a well-drained compost and covered about 5-10 mm deeply. Keep the pot moist at a temperature of between 18 and 22 degrees C in a well-lit position. Seeds should germinate within 2 to 6 weeks but may take much longer so do not discard the seed tray. Pot on small seedlings into 3" or 7cm pots until of a size suitable for final planting into a large pot or outside in warmer countries.
